Book Page Leaf Branch & Contributor Post

Happy Friday! Since it is September and we are officially back to school I thought I would put together a quick and easy fall craft. Although, I have to say, 90 degrees and humid does not make me feel super autumny.
 

This project is fast, easy and inexpensive.  All you need is an old book, a leaf template (just Google "oak leaf" search images, and print on cardstock) pencil, scissors, hot glue, twine and a wispy branch (mine is a forsythia).
 


 
Simply trace the oak pattern on the book pages, cut out and crease in half lengthwise.



 
 
Glue the base of each leaf to the branches using the hot glue.
 

 

 
 
I love the graphic black and white of the book pages...


 
 
 ...and the earthiness and natural element of the twigs.
 
 
 
To hang, I simply wrapped the branches in twine and attached it with a tack to the back of the door.


 
 
I adore the look of neutral fall d├ęcor that doesn't reflect the traditional colors of orange and gold.


 
 P.S. Be sure to check out my September contributor post over at Jennifer Rizzo Design. It is one of my favorites to date!
