Pretty soon they're going to start falling...
They are free, they have great shapes, and most importantly, beautiful colors...
Why don't we take advantage and grab lots of them to decorate our homes!
My latest project made me dig a little bit and check other projects I could tackle with leaves. Whether they're real or not, they are inexpensive, look great, and bring Fall into our homes.
Let's start with this simple idea of a gold painted leaf. I'm telling you, GORGEOUS.
