Ava's Fall Decorative Tree

With winter rushing in I am already missing Fall and all of it's glorious colors.

 I decided I needed to do a project that brought more fall colors into my house.  I only have one more week until we decorate for Christmas so I thought I would squeeze this fall project in.

 Supplies: A couple of fallen branches, scrapbook paper with different patterns and colors, scissors, and tape.  I know this photo shows hot glue but, I ended up using tape.  Oh and a lovely assistant is fun too.  My assistant is shown below.
I cut out several leaves to cover the branches.  I just did a free hand easy leaf shape.
Ava is deep in concentration in this photo.  She took the project pretty seriously.  Since Ava wanted to help I switched from using the hot glue to tape so that she could help without getting burned.  It worked great.  She did such a great job that I didn't hardly have to tape any of them.  I love it when my girls want to get creative.

All done!  It sure makes me happy when I look at it.  Although the trees are bare outside I have this one to gaze at and enjoy these colors for a little longer.

I also wanted to show you a wreath I made last year to hang on my door.  I got the idea from  
Cheri at  I am Momma Hear me Roar.  I found the wreath at Micheal's, the leaves and acorns at the Dollar Tree.  This was hands down the easiest craft project ever!  It probably took me 10 minutes to construct it.  So, if you are looking for a simple and cheap project to put together before Thanksgiving--I would give this one a shot.
