Decorating with Fall Leaves

Here was a fun project yesterday... I don't really do crafts so much anymore but couldn't resist these.  I wrote a letter to my little 5-year and 3-year-old nephew and niece who live in Missouri and asked them to gather some colorful fall leaves for me.  You know how young ones LOVE getting mail addressed to them.  :)  Their mom said they didn't want to stop gathering leaves which arrived in the mail yesterday.  I spent about 30 minutes gluing and arranging and came up with a  few little ideas for decorating with them. We don't have many fall leaves in Florida so this was fun and makes our home look more like fall!  Thanks, AJ and Lilli!  Love and kisses, Aunt Tonya

 They did a good job collecting them, didn't they?

I can't take credit for this.  I found the idea on Pinterest.  
Who would have guessed that fall leaves could look so elegant?   I love this in our living room.

Applied them to some short candles with glue.

And of course, scattered a few  on tables.

I'll use some of the others for fall cards.

Quick, fall decorating!
