Simple Autumn Decorations
I used the same technique that I made the bats with. Some of my leaves aren't the best shape, but hey, I can always throw them out and make some more later.
Very easy and cute. Not to mention, you can make a ton of these and they don't crinkle and dry-up like regular leaves to. You can use them year after year, as long as they are taken care of. I pulled out some gold paint, because I thought it might be beautiful, and then forgot to paint some gold! I have some gold glitter spray that I think I'll spray on some of them and see how it looks.
Now, to hang them-- I didn't want to poke holes in the leaves, so I used colored paper-clips and clipped them to some gold beads. I hung the beads up with regular ol' Christmas ornament hangers, and it worked great! I don't know why I didn't think of it before.
