Autumn Leaf Decorations – A Creative Fall
They are all around us, an implacable proof of time passage. Another fall is lying at our feet, but there’s no time to feel melancholic, but rather to craft. Even though it seems hard to believe dead leaves can turn into things that will up our morale and light the house in both sense, the images below prove the opposite. So let’s take a step back and let the nature speak with these awesome autumn leaf decorations.
All the neighbors know your name, especially if the initial is hanging on the door. But if you wrap it in dry leaves, using a bit of glue, then the impression among those around you will be even greater.
For parties and other events in the family, pick an original way to seat your guests. Use adorable place cards made from autumn leaves and you will surely cut a good figure.
Let’s move on to a bit more complex things. If you have some white plates at home and want to breath some energy into them, then grab some leaves from the park or your yard. Brush paint onto the textured side of the leaves, this will help the design transfer better onto the plate. Test out the stamping process on scrap paper before moving to the plates.
Follow the same steps if you want to get these décor leaf pillows in the bedroom for a more mysterious atmosphere.
And since fall mans an explosion of colors, then let them into your house, too. Pick up leaves of different shape and press them inside a heavy book for ten days. Draw on them then with a metallic paint marker using more colors for s stronger effect. Apply some gloss in the end and a small magnetic strip on the back if you want to hang them on the fridge.
And, finally, besides color, bring some light into your homes as well. All you have to do is glue some leaves on a jar, tie a raffia string at the top and place a candle inside for a romantic autumn in the family.
