Upcycle This: Fallen Leaves

If life-sized ghosts and bat-covered front doors aren’t really your style, skip Halloween-centered décor and focus on another fall favorite: leaves. Whether you’re surrounded by golden aspens or ruby-red maples, that beautiful foliage will fall and leave you with a big mess to rake up!

 

Think about it this way: A mature tree can have as many as 200,000 leaves, and most of those end up in your yard. And that’s just one tree. Instead of tossing all of those leaves in the dumpster, or composting your pile immediately, save a handful or two for a unique DIY project. Make a wreath, hang them with string or even spray paint the outline of your leaves to create a unique piece of wall art. Every leaf is an opportunity to create an awesome fall decoration.
