Many of you may be seeing a lot of Christmas posts out there, but being that I am a confirmed Autumn Lover I’m not ready to let go of fall just yet. During one of my recent walks around the neighborhood I picked up these pretty leaves you see below.
I just couldn’t see not bringing them home to hold onto their warm colors. And hold onto them I did with this how to easily add fall in your home project!
We have a lot of stuff in our new house because it’s really an old house. My older kids have been here for years and it was once my home before we moved to Greece. So naturally we have plenty of stuff. I didn’t just move into a new to us home. One of my recent finds when we got here, were some simple black frames. I decided I’d work with these for this super simple project.
What I Used:
- Pretty fall leaves picked up from nature
- A few black picture frames
- paper that is used for packing or as it is also called newsprint
The How To:
I spread the paper along the back of the frames. And then placed the leaves in front. Then slid the whole thing inside the frames. You can see that the paper is wrinkled. This suits me just fine because I love that imperfect look which gives the project loads of texture.
It does not get any easier!
You’ll have to excuse the glare but this is how you know that there is actual glass there. I am just keeping it real. It wouldn’t work if I was to take the glass off.
I honestly don’t know how long they will last … after all winter is coming! And the frames will be changed out for Christmas decor so it is not a problem.
I love the contrast between the black and white and that intense color of the leaves. Doesn’t it look like art?
