I love Fall-- I especially look forward to the crisp air and falling leaves. However, where I live, it usually doesn't start to look or feel like Fall until late November/early December. sigh. I'm a bit impatient so I decided to create my own "fall colors". With some burlap scraps, scissors and paint, these Painted Burlap Leaves are easy and pretty quick to make.
At first I wasn't exactly sure what to do with them, but then decided to go with my old standby- a garland for my family room mantel--

to save time, i folded up the burlap in thirds so that I could cut out 3 leaves at a time
to stiffen the material, i painted both sides of the leaf. burlap tends to fray so the paint also helps hold the fibers together.
This is pretty much it for my Fall decor. I'm keeping it simple this year. I'll probably take out some pumpkins, but the rest will stay put in the closet.
Do you decorate for Fall?
