1. Gather the tools and materials listed above.
  2. Cut out the leaves according to the template notes using scissors.
  3. Glue two leaf halves together with the grain facing in opposite directions so the grain comes to a point in the middle.
  4. Wrap the copper wire around the foam ball about ten to fifteen time. Cut with the wire cutters.
  5. Remove the foam ball from the middle and reshape the wire into a ball shape.
  6. Cut seven feet of cotton cord and begin gluing the leaves on about eight inches down the cord. Layer the leaves so they all face the same direction.
  7. Continue gluing the leaves onto the cord. Leave about eight inches of cord on each end for hanging.
  8. Create volume by pulling back some of the leaves, then place your wire balls in the garland by sticking one end of the wire ball through a leaf.
