Autumn Leaf Bouquet

"Autumn is a second spring
when every leaf is a flower."
~ Albert Camus ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The changing colors of the leaves is always the highlight for me during the Fall season.
The Lord brings forth such beauty that you cannot help but smile at the loveliness of Autumn.

The leaves have been falling from the trees here in the mountains 
and I wasn't quite ready to let them go so I made a simple leaf flower bouquet
 using real leaves and poppy flower pods that have dried out.


Why don't you gather some leaves and flower pods to create your own Fall bouquet :)
It makes a charming addition to any room in the house.


Once you have gathered the needed items just hot glue the leaves onto the flower pods.


Fill a glass jar with moss or shredded paper
and add some burlap and ribbon to the outside of the jar.


Easy peasy!
Charm your friends and family with your new leaf bouquet :)



"Listen! the wind is rising
and the air is wild with leaves.
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves."
~ Humbert Wolfe ~


Thank you for stopping by, lovely friends!
Have a joy-filled day :)

Good Morning, dear friend!
Your bouquet is so precious! I, too, am not ready to let the "fall" in, yet. Amazingly, when I stepped outside this morning to temps. hovering around 45 degrees...there was a single rose blooming in my little flower garden! What a blessing...God always showing His handiwork just when our hearts need it. I am so thankful that He brought us together at this time, too, sweet friend. You have been such a blessing to me. Thank you.

With love and hugs,
Laura

Our autumn does not produce such color, but every once in a while I find a maple that has a tinge of red. This is such a cool idea!

Mary said...

Your arrangement is so pretty, you are a very creative lady!

Sylvia said...

Good morning Stephanie, your photo's are always a blessing to me. So pretty and a reminder that all God's creations have beauty, you've added pretty colors to your arrangement. Love the burlap around the pot.

Hi Stephanie! You can make anything look so pretty!

I have some fake lilies on my porch, and my friend told me it's time for fall colors. She's right! I'll have to go and look for some pods on my next walk through the woods. Oh, and throw in some acorns too. I do love this season.

Congrats on your win at Delvalinas! She told me you are going to handle the mail. That is so nice of you, I know that you have a special relationship with her. Bless you :)
Happy Tuesday, my friend :)

Wow! Stunning creation. Those flower pods looks very nice. Loved it a lot.

Billie Jo said...

Now that is stunning, my friend.

Fall is too fleeting for me. I wish for a year full of fall...but then I suppose I would not appreciate it as much. : )

Have a wonderful day. ..

What a beautiful bouquet of leaves! That is very creative. :-) I may have to try something like that when our trees finally turn colors! It seems like they think it is still the middle of summer!

I hope you are having a delightful day! <3
