autumn leaf garland

Last week I saw this idea and this idea. Which inspired me to make this:

Cool, huh. I cut out a bunch of leaves from an old textbook and brown kraft paper.

Max joined in the fun and helped me paint the leaves. Before he got started, we talked about what color autumn leaves are (in Houston most leaves turn from green to brown). Then I looked over and he was painting a leaf blue! I’ll admit it: I was bothered. Leaves are NOT blue.

So I asked him why he was painting it blue and he said, “I think some leaves wish they were blue.” Can’t argue with that.

After the paint was dry, I strung twine through the hooks in our mantle (for hanging the stockings at Christmas) and hot glued the leaves on to the twine.

I’m thinking this could make a great wreath too…
