Do you decorate your living space with fall leaves?
1. Decorative Doodling
Although fall leaves look beautiful on their own, you can enhance their look and turn them into a real piece of art.
Let your children take part in decorating. Help them doodle different designs on the leaves. The above- shown one is simply gorgeous, isn’t it?
2. Transparent Simplicity
To really highlight the bright colors and natural textures of already pressed fall leaves, keep them pressed between two pieces of clear plastic or glass, and then frame them.

3. Across the Wall
You can go a step further and attach leaves in a falling pattern directly to the wall (and even to furniture) or frame a bunch of them and hang on the wall in a large grid.
4. Leaf Relief
You can get really crafty with a truly amazing leaf relief project for a metallic or fossilized look. An absolutely fantastic piece of fall décor!
5. Gold & Silver
With the holidays getting closer, instead of leaving your leaves naturally colored, you can spray paint them in gold or silver for a gorgeous yet simple holiday look.
What an easy and affordable way to add sophistication and sparkle to any space!
6. Framed Elegance
You already have lots of framed art in your home? Then, you can swap out a photo for a simple pressed leaf and a plain piece of brown paper.
For a slightly different look, combine a frame with a garland of leaves.
Definitely a statement piece of fall décor!
7. Grand Garlands and Beautiful Banners
You want to go bigger? Spray your leaves with an acrylic sealer and hang them from a string by their stems.
Alternatively, you could even cut out pieces of paper instead as a banner and attach leaves to them.
