Yesterday was Labor Day andw e were nejoying the lovely last minutes of summer and today I am breaking out all of my Autumn decorations. Fall is my very favorite time of year, and I love the easy and thrifty deocr that autumn brings. Do you all decorate for fall or just wait for Halloween to roll around and get spooky? Sticks, pine cones, and acorns that we find on our hikes usually play a big role in my decorating, but this time I grabbed a couple of old books to dress up this small caddy and give it a cozy feel.
I chose 3 pages from different books to get distinct color differences in my feathers. I folded the page in half and cut out a leaf shape. I love that these do not need to look perfect and there is no need for measuring.
I snipped little cuts down the sides of the feathers and used hot glue to attach the tiny twigs. Then I tied the bundle together and hot glued them to the caddy. It took me about 15 minutes to complete the entire project.
What do you think? I couldn't decide what to put into my mason jars. I stuck some white candles in there, but do you have any ideas for something that might look better or have a bigger Autumn feel?
