Fall DIY Burlap Leaves

leavespackages
I found these cute packages of burlap leaves at Wal-mart the other day. They were only $1.34 USD. I decided to buy one package in every color and use them for a little DIY fall project. The only other thing I needed was twine.

All I had to do was twist the wire on each leaf onto the twine. I spaced them about 4 inches apart.

Un Automne Guirlande Facile

I love decorating for Fall. But with three busy kids, it is difficult to find the time. I came up with an easy diy Fall garland that I just love! It only requires a string of mini white lights, a hole punch and artificial leaves.

Punch a hole in the center of each leaf. Attach one leaf to each individual light, carefully pulling the leaf onto the stem of the light (not on the bulb).

It is so easy and beautiful. It really brings the outside colors of Fall in.

At night, we love turning on the lights.

Tee-se-itse TUESDAY! (Do-it-yourself) décoration d’automne

After a very long hiatus, I am finally back to my blog. I can never get anything done during the summer when my kids are off school. Then, tragically, my mother-in-law was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer that had aggressively metastasized to her lungs, kidney, lymph nodes, spine and liver. We quickly moved her from Ohio to New Jersey to live with us and receive treatment. Sadly, she died a month later. I am just now regrouping enough to be creative. The beautiful Fall foliage around me here in Princeton, NJ has helped!

I came across this very easy Tee-se-itse (do-it-yourself) autumn decoration on Dea Vita. It has inspired me to once again be creative! I came up with my own twist to this unique and beautiful  design.

I bought a little burlap bag instead of using the cone element. Then, I bought artificial floral pieces.

I inserted a few pieces of cardboard to stiffen it up and filled the bottom with bunched up plastic bags. I also cut off one of the handles and made a bow. I then arranged the floral pieces.

I love it! It is both simple and festive.
