Autumn is my favorite season, yet I haven’t truly been able to experience one for several years as I’ve been residing in sub-tropical and tropical locations [the love for the season stems from my upbringing in the piney woods of East Texas]. But when I took my regular beachcombing stroll last week, I noticed our tropical plants raining down leaves of red and brown hues. So I gathered several, thinking there was surely a way to incorporate them into my home decor for the season. Low and behold, there was a way: a leaf bunting, of course! So, here’s a VERY easy three step do-it-yourself to the perfect autumn leaf bunting!
All you need are several leaves, some embroidery floss and a large needle. Simple recipe for a basic and natural home decoration for the season!
Three easy steps to creating the perfect autumn leaf bunting from gathered leaves (use any sturdy, thick leaves! I’m using sea grapes and almond leaves collected from the beach). Here are your very basic steps below:
You’ll be surprised how beautiful it really looks when displayed in your home! Mine is hanging over the window of my kitchen sink. The usual winter holidays and events don’t always feel quite the same when living on a tropical island where the weather swing is only by about 5 degrees on the 80s-90s Fahrenheit scale [I’m not complaining, I promise! I just love Autumn like you guys too haha]. So try something new for me this season – bring in all those crunchy, crispy fall colored leaves into your home for a little natural uplift. I know they won’t last for months, but at least enjoy them while you can.
Stay tuned for a giveaway this week!!!
