1. Print out the leaves you would like to use and transfer the patterns onto the rainbow colored cardboard and cut out. Poke a hole in both top and bottom of each leaf.
2. Start by cutting a length of string for hanging. Using a needle, add 3 beads to the string (go again through the last bead to secure it and keep it from sliding) and then knot the string to the next leaf.
3. Connect a new piece of string to the bottom of the leaf, add three beads as in step 2 and knot the string to the next leaf. Continue in this manner until you have the length you desire. Finish by adding 3 beads to the bottom leaf.
