Hellooo Autumn - Oh prettiest of seasons!
You all know how much I love being cosy, and as much as I've enjoyed this unusually hot british summer, to be honest I'm itching to put away my summer dresses and get my woolies and warmies out! So to celebrate the change in the season I wanted to share the 'autumn leaves garland' I've just made to decorate my fireplace. It took all of 5 minutes to make and really brings this beautiful season into the house. It's also a great project to do with kiddies, though Ralphy wasn't too keen for some reason ...
All you need is:
10 Autumn leaves
Ribbon or string
Collect 10 Autumn leaves in different colours, shapes and sizes. You'll only need 6/8 but collect more in case some tear. Take them home, and pop them inside a book (or flower press) and leave on the bookshelf for a few weeks, or until the leaves are completely dry. You could use fake leaves, but real ones are much nicer.
Hang your ribbon where you want it
Hand your leaves (gently) at even intervals along the ribbon using your cute mini pegs.
Ta da!! Pretty ain't it :-) now make a hot chocolate and enjoy your work.
