I have this great container on my piano that I love to put fun things in for the holidays! All summer it kind of sat there, sad, empty, and neglected. So I figured for fall I might as well put something in it, since I can practically decorate for three months at once!
First I painted a piece of burlap I had in fall colors. Totally random, no intentional pattern.
I found three leaves I liked online and cut them out
(thank you google search!)
Then I cut leaves from the burlap.
Scraps... couldn't figure out what to do with them, so they went in the trash.
Then I hot-glued them on some branches from our tree out front, and stuck them in!
The container was actually originally full of cotton candy that I wrapped in jute (with a whole bunch of hot glue!). I just change out the ribbon with the season! All spring/summer it was a green ribbon, now it's a strip of burlap and some red lace (fall and Christmas, score!)
