Leafy Tree for Fall!
Sorry for the wait on the post but I have been busy with some other things. I have been canning - salsa and raspberry jam. I love fall with all the things going on and the smell of salsa in the house. So onto the blog post- I had this idea as I was driving home the other day from eating lunch with my honey. I had a couple styrofoam cones left over from a trip to the Dollar Store and I remember that some blog used some fall leaves to cover a wreath. Well, why not cover the cone and make a fall tree? So first I bought some fall leaves at -- you guessed it! - the Dollar Store and I already had the styrofoam cone so so far I am into this craft $3.00! I came home and started making it by hot gluing on the leaves to the cone. I started at the bottom and worked my way up. After I had covered it once, I added some more to fill it out. I then found an old candle pillar and put it on there. Here is the finished picture!
I had some leaves left over so I added some to a grapevine wreath and used some gold tulle and made this cute wreath too.
I still have some so I might have to try a cute table runner that I saw with burlap and fall leaves. Hmmmm - decisions, decisions. :) Hope you enjoy the project and enjoy your crafting!
