This weekend was really the beginning of fall. Not only did the local waffle house have pumpkin pancakes to sample, but the weather had a little chill in the air and Grandpap decided to cover the pool for the season. I thought that we should start showing a few signs of fall in the house as well, so I whipped up a quick and easy batch using the same recipe that we did for a Mother's Day craft back in May. They turned out perfectly!
After the ornaments cooled down, I went in search of fall colors to use on the leaves. I thought this would be the perfect craft for the whole family to participate in, so we spread out on the dining room table, put some newspaper down, and got to work!
|We also experimented with Q-Tips to see what fun designs we could make with them!|
After all of the leaves (and a couple of moons, for the Autumn Moon Festival coming up!) had dried, I added a piece of gold or red ribbon to each so that we could put them on display. I brought a small tree up from the basement and we added each leaf to it so that we can all enjoy your salt dough ornaments throughout the fall season.
