Nothing screams autumn more than the bright-colored fallen leaves. There are many things you can create with these versatile materials – and these are perfect projects for you and your children.
Birch Leaf Wreath
Use leaves as a stencil, tracing them onto birch bark. Cut them out, and secure together to form a wreath. You can use this as fall and winter decor.
Leaf-Stamped Table Runner
This runner is perfect for Thanksgiving. Start by measuring and cutting a length of linen to the size of the table. Fray the edges of the fabric by pulling out each thread lengthwise. Coat each fallen leaf with fabric paint using a roller. One at a time, press the leaf paint-side down onto the runner. Place paper on top of the leaf, and roll over it with a brayer.
On the roof and gutters, fallen leaves can cause damage and drainage issues. With Gutter Helmet® gutter guards, your gutter stays efficient, which is essential to a high-performing roof. So, remove the leaves, and you can use them as beautiful decor to enhance your interior. Make string lights even more magical by attaching fallen leaves on them. You can hang them on the stair’s handrail or your bed’s headboard.
Candlelight will make the leaves appear like glowing flames. Using spray adhesives, wrap the leaves around a candleholder, allowing each stem to extend a little past the base, and trim any overhang along the bottom. You can line them up at the center of your dinner table or place them around the house.
While fallen leaves are attractive, you don’t want them stuck in your gutters. Invest in a quality gutter protection system to make sure your gutters are clog-free.
