Hang them- I made this last year. It hangs outside my dining area. I love watching it blow and spin in the wind. If you’d like to make one this year, go here for the tutorial.
Clip them- I think I love these tiny clothespins almost as much as I love spray paint and mod podge.
I tied some twine from the stair railing, then hung the leaves by the little clothes pins to the twine.
It’s kind of a mix between a bunting and garland.
Tie them- Take some twine and just wrap it around a leaf and a vase, bottle or candle.
Tie a bow in the front with the twine.
Or tie the leaves to the ends of the twine and wrap it around the lid of a jar.
Glue them- I’ve had snowflakes, hearts, eggs, flowers and shamrocks hanging from these branches, but never leaves. Now I do.
I used a glue gun and glued a few leaves here and there. This is upstairs between Emilee’s room and the boy’s playroom.
I love how it turned out. I think it’s my favorite.
Stuff them- This one was easy. Just take a few leaves and stuff them into a candle holder, vase, bottle, etc. My mom gave me this cute candle holder last month and I love it. Thanks Mom!
Stick them- I took three foam balls and these cheapy garland leaves and made some cute leaf balls.
I had to use hot glue in a few places, but usually I could just stick the leaves in the foam and they stayed put.
It took about 3 minutes to make each ball.
And I wasn’t precise at all, just start sticking them in.
I put all three of them in this pretty white bowl. Maybe I’ll add some other decorative balls later.
Can you guess the best part about decorating with leaves? Yeap, I had everything I needed on hand so the total cost was $0. Which fits perfectly within my budget. Can you think of more ways to decorate with leaves?
