So for today’s project…. I have kids, my kids have toys, toys come in containers that were at one point a way to organize said toys. The toys are now all over the floor, and I commandeer the containers and use them as assistance to my decor. Typical life cycle of a toy container here at Our home. I used most of these great wood Melissa and Doug boxes for my shell display, gallery wall. I had one left. Now I have none left. I put this one to use.
Confession time, this project was done a few weeks ago. Back when we had green leaves on our trees. I had a few leaf projects I was going to do so I grabbed a few different kinds of leaves. They were all going to fall off the tree shortly so I had zero guilt about cutting these leaves life cycle down a little.
|I asked Dale to get me a few other leaves to see if I wanted to try something else. This is what he brought me, apparently this is “a few”|
I think it was a fun, small addition to my ever changing fall decor. And can we say really cheap project? The toys that the wood box came in were the most expensive part of this whole thing. I think it looks like a leaf, Nora says it looks like a fall tree. Either way, as long as they are not looking like ink blots I call it a win! I can use this as a art piece (like it is now) or a actual basket to hold things on a table.
