natural ornaments, a leaf corsage or two

We don’t have as many changing leaves as I would like here in Texas, but I can find some autumntastic examples if I trespass a bit. I decided that they were perfectly nice accessories with a little effort, and so I made a few leaf corsages with nothing more than leaves, acorns, hot glue and a pin. These are not long term investment jewelry pieces, but they are a nice pop of fall color and give me another reason for relaxing fall walks and leaf gathering. I’ve always collected acorns and leaves, now I have one more reason to raid the neighbors’ yards. I still need a crop of acorns for the acorn charms I make all season! What are you doing with your leaves this fall?

I added a bit of felt on the back to attach the leaves and the pin
