Fall Leaf Stained Glass
Happy day readers! This morning I was awoken super early by a dog and a child (we're dog sitting, oh, and I have a toddler who always wakes up super early), and thought it was a perfect crisp fall morning for a walk. On our walk the sides of the streets were covered in brightly colored fallen leaves. Yellows, reds, maroons, oranges... swirled together to make a fallen leaf river. Like normal people, E and I began shoveling the leaves into one of the grocery bags I had brought with us (for you know.... because of the dog).
What could be better than to make a leaf collage? And, of course, on contact paper! Because, that's just what I like to do this time of year (see last spring's nature collage).
I taped the clear contact paper to our giant glass sliding door, piled the leaves into a bowl and released the toddler. There could be nothing better to a toddler than a giant sticky surface that his mom let's him play with.
Once deemed complete, I folded the contact paper in half to secure the leaves inside. We hung it in our living room window for a little fall and Thanksgiving decor.
How do you like to use leaves in your fall decor?
