There's nothing sweeter than a stellar day with your favorite people. The second best thing? A framed memory of the event--especially if the frame is a homemade one. Here's a craft for a colorful frame that'll be just as fabulous as the picture it holds.
What you’ll need
Plain picture frame
Paint brush or foam brush
What you’ll do
Head outside and collect a pile of pretty fall leaves, the more
vibrant, the better. Put them between the pages of a few heavy, thick books to
get them flat. This may take a day or two.
When the leaves are flat, spread newspaper over your workspace and get
down to the crafting. Cover the frame with a layer of ModPodge (note: working
in sections might be easier). Press the leaves into place, holding them still
until they stay. When your entire frame is covered, paint on another layer of
ModPodge to seal the leaves. Let dry completely.
