8 Cool and Clever Ways to Use Leaves This Fall

Have the leaves started falling where you live yet? They have here, but it’s still 90+ degrees outside. I’ve been ready for fall for weeks now and this “2nd summer” is killing me.

So, as I watch in awe of the work mother nature does (while annoyingly swatting away mosquitos) I’ll keep daydreaming about that autumn-like weather that I so love and all the ways I can put those beautiful red, gold, and brown leaves to use.


Ways to use leaves this fall


one | Book Page  Pressed Leaf Bunting

I love buntings. I have one (or two) for every season that I display in our home. I especially like this one because I am a total book nerd!

two | Fall Coasters

Although these coasters don’t use real leaves, it could easily be done with a bit of Modge Podge. Then, viola, completely cute and rustic fall coasters.

three | Falling Leaves Garland

If you hate glitter then I suggest skipping this craft. I, for one, love it. And this project is so easy. Just a bit of Elmer’s Glue and your favorite fall glitter colors. So pretty!

four | Leaf Printed Linens

When you don’t want to spend a bazillion dollars on an autumn tablecloth, but just have to have one, you make your own. Much cheaper and you can customize it any way you like!

five | Autumn Leaf Crowns

Absolutely adorable, right?! When I saw these crowns I quickly decided this is the first fall craft I will be doing with the kids this year! They’re going to love it!

six | Leaf Fairy Lights

Just when I thought fairy lights couldn’t get any lovelier, someone goes and adds fall foliage. Gah! I just love this!

seven | Leaf and Branch Mobile

What a beautiful way to bring nature into your home. This can be done with homemade leaves, but I think fallen leaves are the best!

eight |Decoupage Pumpkin

When I was a teenager I decoupaged the walls of my bedroom. I’m totally not kidding. So, it’s no surprise that I love the idea of decoupaging a pumpkin. So many possibilities!

Do you bring the outside indoors by using nature to craft and decorate? I’d love to hear about your projects in the comments!
