Autumn Leaf Bouquet

 Well Christmas is seemingly just around the corner, but until we can turn up our Christmas music and break out the gingerbread cookies, we may have to settle for some Fall decorating instead. Here is a really clever idea for all of those yellow and orange leaves that many of us have covering our front lawns.

This is a bouquet of roses made entirely out of leaves and twigs! This is such a great idea that will cost next to nothing! All you will need from the store, if you dont already have some, is florist tape (available for about $1 at Walmart).

This autumn leaf bouquet is such a simple craft that will look amazing when you display it at your thanksgiving feast, and what better way to break the awkward silences with the in-laws than with this conversation starter.

Give it a try,
Happy Raking!

  1. This is awesome - can't wait to try it!

  2. Keeping with the Christmas Spirit the best things in life are shared, free, and found within nature and ourselves.

  3. I have my floral tape but I may have missed the fall leaves. I'm thinking this would work with fresh spring leaves too? Thank you for sharing this.

  4. Great idea! You did a great job! Thanks so much for linking up! Have a great week! :)
