Embrace Fall Colors

In keeping with the concept of the changing of the season, here are some tips from MyHomeIdeas on how to make use of the changing colors of the leaves (which, by the way, has already started!) First on the list is to create your own autumn wreath. Buy a straw wreath base and collect whichever leaves or clippings you desire. Gather the stems in bunches of four of five and pin the first bunch to the wreath base with a U-shaped floral pin, which you can buy at the craft store, with leaf tips facing clockwise. Take a second bunch of leaves and overlap the first slightly to cover the pins, continuing to do so working counterclockwise until the entire base is covered. Not sold on a wreath? How about filling a window box with your favorite-colored foliage? Continue reading instructions on creating your own window box and more by clicking here.
