It’s finally October! You know what that means, right—time to decorate, decorate, DECORATE! I’m a little excited, can you tell? I love getting my home all cutesied up for the fall season. Whenever I go shopping lately, I see so many cool decorations that I’d love to buy, but I can’t get too crazy (after all, Christmas is just around the corner—I definitely need to save my pennies). That’s why I’m a big fan of fun, simple, and affordable DIYs like these cute printable leaves!
I’m really liking how these turned out: simple yet beautiful. And they are a cinch to make! All you need is:
- My printable template
- Sturdy paper (I used some matte brown cardstock and one sheet of fancy, sparkly paper)
- A bone scorer
How to Make
Print your leaves.
(My printer couldn’t handle the sparkly paper, so I traced my leaves on the backside before cutting those ones out)
Score the leaves to add detail and form.
That’s it! What did I tell you—pretty easy, right?
I just used these to spruce up my fall tablescape, but they would work great as part of a garland, festive wreath, or even place cards. There’s really no limits to how you could use these: choose whatever fall colors suite your fancy, and just have a ball!
If you’re into making simple DIY decorations like this, you should check out my collection of printable decor freebies; especially this fall garland I posted last year. And be sure to stay tuned (I feel like I’m a radio DJ when I say that), because I’ve got even more fun fall goodies in the works.

I hope you enjoy this fun, simple printable. How do you like to decorate on a budget?
