Fall Leaf Jars

I love decorating with nature, and I love fall colors, so when it comes time for fall decorating you can always expect an abundance of leaves to appear in my home. This year I am really enjoying this unique variation from my usual fall leaf display methods.

Placing the brightly colored leaves in glass jars, in my south facing window, has created a beautiful sun catcher effect that brightens the whole room, and really accentuates the amazing colors of the leaves themselves.

The process for this one is very simple.

* String

* An assortment of fake fall leaves. You can use real leaves but they need to be thoroughly dried or else they will end up rotting in the closed up jar.

Remove the leaves from the stems and place 2-3 leaves in each jar.

Try to mix and match a bit to make sure each jar has lots of color.

Select a drill bit slightly larger than your string.

Place a piece of scrap wood under a lid.

Then drill a hole in the center of each lid.

Pull off a length of string and double it over, then tie the ends together with a knot.

Slide the looped end of the string through the hole in the lid (from the underside).

Then place the lid and rim onto the jar. Repeat with all other jars.

I measured my window and then hammered small nails into the top of the trim in the proper intervals to go across the whole window.

Then looped the string over the nails.

I tried to do assorted lengths of string so that the jars would hang at random heights.

I am still messing around with them because I accidently made a pattern rather than random.

That’s generally how my mind works. No matter how hard I try to create randomness, patterns generally emerge.

I think that is why I love decorating with nature.

The world around us seems to also create an interesting blend of random and patterns. Almost like it is struggling, just like me, to create a balance of artistic chaos and perfect organization.
