Needles-n-Pins: How To Make Fall Leaves

I think one of the prettiest things about fall is all the colors of the leaves and plants. There are so many trees and different leaves and they all turn a different color. Bringing those leaves and colors into your home for your fall decorating can really add a splash of color to your home. 

Since I love to decorate for fall I was looking for ways to make some fall leaves and thought I would share some of the ideas I found with you. 

Now I am a crocheter so I thought I would start with this one. Craftstylish has this great tutorial on how to crochet these cute leaves.

Burlap items are very popular right now so I thought...hey....why not make some fall leaves out of burlap. Fox Hollow Cottage will show you how to do this. 

Looks at these pretty glittery leaves! And they are sooooooooooooo easy to make!  6th Street Design School will show you how to make these. I think I could even do this! :)

My true love is quilts. I love to make quilts and quilted items although time restraints keep me from this at times. Here is a great tutorial from Buttons And Butterflies on how to make quilted fall leaf pot holders. I think I will try this one myself. 

Looking at all these tutorials really makes me want to get started on making some fall leaves for my decorating. Hmmmmm.....which one should I start with....let me see. :)

Happy sewing and crafting!
