Leaves--Crafts & a Story

Today we worked on changing Hazel's seasonal tree to be autumn. We started to hang our salt dough ornaments and I made her a leaf garland. All I did was use thread and a needle to sew some fabric leaves that I bought at the dollar store. Very easy to do and it added much to her tree. It could also be used to decorate a mailbox, mantle, or staircase.
I used those same leaves on a candle I bought at Rite Aid. I took the sticker off and used Mod Podge to stick them on and seal them on. I actually tried with some pressed leaves that I had, but I think they had gotten too dry and pressed because they would not stick well. I love what the leaves add to the candle. Did I mention the fall candles are 50% off this week?

Finally here is another story about Sister Autumn and her leaf fairies. Click on the picture to get the pdf of it.
Happy Autumn!! Enjoy!!


  1. I love the idea of a seasonal tree. How fun to add some leaves to not only your (Hazel's) seasonal tree but your candles as well.

  2. Thank you for posting on Saturday Show and Tell! I hope you'll be back this week with more!

  3. Fall leaves are one of our favorite items to use in crafts and this is a great idea. We'd love it if you'd stop by our linky party and share...our theme this week is Halloween-y, but we love this and hope you share anyway :D

    Hope to see you there!
