Tis the season to bring some nature inside. I haven't been privileged the fall colors yet so I chose to work with artificial leaves. I picked up the leaves and the raffia from the dollar store.
For this project I used:
Pick a pinecone that is open all the way. That way you can stagger your leaves.
I poked holes in the leaves tied a knot and hot glued the raffia to each leave to keep them secure. I cut the raffia in various lengths to give the look more depth.
After I had all the individual leaves glued to the raffia I glued it to the pinecone in different areas.
Your quantity of leaves is your personal preference.
I tied another piece of raffia around the top, glued it and that's how I have hung mine.
For $2 and some nature it's not a bad display. I could have made two and put one on each side of the curtain for decoration too.
Have you started decorating for fall? Do you make some decorations with nature?
