We gather leaves together

Create a harvest wreath for Thanksgiving day. Make a garland swag of autumn leaves. Display signs of autumn and bring the warmth of color to the chilly winds of autumn.

If you want to have beautiful autumn leaves last all season, get the leaf collection on LD and save them like you would the leaves in nature. This is a simple craft that can be used in many projects over the harvest season. To do so you will need, the files to make these creations from the Wee Gather Together Leaves cut it set and the Wee Gather Together Sayings on LD.

To make the autumn leaves, I chose papers from Paper Source in text weight. After I cut out various leaf sizes and shapes, I bent and curled them into shapes to resemble actual leaves. I then sprits sprayed them with a few spray paint colors for added texture and let dry.

I got a grapevine wreath and laid out the colored leaves, then tucked in a few pods and seeds from the Wee Gather Together Seed and Pods collection. 

I then created a sign from the Wee Gather Together Sayings also on LD to display in the middle of the wreath. These sayings can be used for other harvest and holiday decor purposes as well.

The autumn leaves can decorate a wreath, but they are also festive and fitting to hang in garland strands both inside and outside of the home, school, or workplace.

Don’t let this season come to a close without taking in the beautiful colors that will soon fade into winter days of gray.
