To begin, prepare the organza leaves. Click here to see how to embroider the leaves. I am hanging four to five leaves per string. 

After the leaves have dried and are pressed, thread a needle with all purpose heavy-duty thread. Sew a single thread through the top of the first leaf and tie the end of the thread in place with a couple of knots.

Then, trim the thread and tie the opposite end around a small plastic or metal ring to create a hanger. Or, form a loop at the end of the thread and tie a knot to secure the loop.

Next, sew a single thread through at the bottom of the first leaf and tie in place. Then, trim the thread as long as you like and sew the free end through the top of the next leaf. Tie the thread in place and repeat this process for each of the remaining leaves.

String as many or as few leaves together as you like. Try stringing single leaves and hanging them at different levels for a fun effect. Then step back and admire the sun shining through the leaves!
