Scrapbook Leaves

I adore pretty paper, and I use a lot of scrapbook paper in my classroom. I mounted some of my students' writing this past week, and decided to use the scraps to make decorative oak leaves for our kitchen window.

I made a smaller version for our mantle. I challenged myself by not spending any money to decorate for changing of the seasons, and it turned out okay. I used a burlap and fabric scrap, vases, mason jars, small decorative apples, and pine cones (that needed to come out of our yard anyways).

Not quite done with it yet, but it is getting there! It's amazing how creative and resourceful one can be on a strict budget!
