Fast and easy fall craft


This has got to be one of the easiest and quickest crafts I've ever done. I was inspired by this project at Midwest Living. I already had a red frame on hand. If you don't, go grab a plain wood one from the craft of dollar store and paint it red. Instead of adding hooks or nails to my frame, I just tied ribbon around each side of the frame and then pinned fake leaves to the ribbon. You can get these leaves in packs from the Dollar Tree, Michaels, or just pull of few off an old garland.


I'm using my framed leaves on the mantel and love the pop of color they give.
