Crafting: Autumn Leaves & Linky
September 24, 2010
Oh happy day, so glad it’s Friday! I took a brisk walk this morning to clear the cobwebs after dropping my kids off at school. This fall day could not be any more lovely, with bright blue skies, a gentle breeze, and turning leaves rustling in the trees. I plan to spend most of this weekend outdoors enjoying this autumn weather. The semi annual Antique Fair is also this weekend, so I’ll be browsing that just for fun.
This is the perfect time of year for crafting with fall leaves. If you’re looking for a fun and inexpensive project, take a peek at these creations from last year.
Here’s a few more weekend craft ideas to bring the feel of fall into your home with leaves:
Use double sided tape to adorn basic hurricanes
Fashion a wreath with fresh clippings
Fill a rustic or galvanized container with branches
Set a table with some colorful garland
Fill a hurricane with a candle and freshly fallen leaves
Layer bundles of branches on your porch
Drape a simple garland along a table, mantel, or edge of a counter
Learn how to preserve leaves in wax and then make a mobile to rustle in the breeze
Suspend them from your dining room chandelier . . .
Display some fall color above your mantel
Or learn how to press leaves here
Then frame them on your wall.
Have you crafted anything with fall leaves?
Where have you decorated with leaves this season ?
Let’s see !
Here’s an impromptu linky party for those of you like me who can’t get enough of decorating with those autumn leaves! Link party active through Monday September 27th.
Before I forget, there’s an interview with me over at Pepper Design, be sure to pop on over and say hello!
Happy Autumn Weekend ~ now let’s get to linking!
