Simple Fall DIY Projects Using Real Leaves

By Kate Riley

September is here which means the trees will be giving us abundant leaves very soon. Bringing them indoors and decorating with them creates a cozy atmosphere in your home.

I’m always drawn to projects that are simple and lovely. Below are a collection of creative DIY projects you can complete in a short amount of time using nature’s resource: autumn leaves. For many of these you could substitute faux leaves, but if you can find the real thing for free, use them!
