a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. Step 2. Gently wash the leaves and lay them out to
dry. Then press them between the pages of a big
book for five to seven days to flatten them. Step 3. Spread your leaves around the house to add
an autumn touch to your current decorations. Place them at the bases of vases, on shelves,
or on your fireplace mantel, but away from areas that could catch the leaves on fire. Step 4. Thread a bendable vine through the leaves. Then wrap the vine around a picture frame

rub red, orange, yellow, and brown crayons over the leaves. The veins of the leaves will appear as you
rub. Place your autumnal mats around your table. Step 6. Attach magnets to the backs of the leaves
with a glue gun and use your magnetized leaves as refrigerator magnets or place them on steel
doors to add a touch of color throughout the house. Enjoy the season and the colors it brings. Did you know Johnny Mercer wrote lyrics to

  1. Howcast is just messing with us.
    They make tons of videos and then post them whenever they want.
    For instance, Autumn decorations, beach holiday and barbeque tips in the Winter.

  2. Is this the dumbest video I ever watched – naaah, but a close second. Unless I missed something, you never said how to keep the leaves from turning to crumbs all over the house. What?

  3. Here’s a great idea which I have just done. Get a leaf.
    Roll out some craft clay.
    Press leaf onto clay to transfer the veins.
    Cut around leaf and peel it off the clay. Make a hanging hole. Leave to dry.
    Paint in copper, gold, silver.
    I gilded mine with gold and copper leaf.
    String up with fishing twine.
