1. Place artificial maple leaves in a small glass bowl.
2. Unravel a length of gold twine from the roll.
3. Use a scissor to snip approximately 3 inches of twine off the roll.
4. Squeeze a small amount of glue on the bottom of a maple leaf.
5. Secure two ends of the gold twine cut in step 3 to the glue. The leaf should now feature a gold twine loop.
6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 until all the leaves in the bowl feature a loop of twine.
7. Unroll some bakers twine from the roll, then slip the bakers twine through all the loops on the leaves. The leaves should now dangle upside-down.
8. Cut the twine from the roll.
9. Choose a location for the garland. Secure each end of the fall garland to tacks or adhesive strips.
