Here at citymade we try not to overload on the decor because we are all about functionality. Â However, during the holidays it is hard to stay away from it completely. Â We promise we will try to keep our Thanksgiving decor simple and tasteful.
So, if you were hoping for a tutorial on panty hose pilgrims
or pineapple turkeys
you may be a littleÂ disappointed.
And, by the way, pet week is over so you won’t be seeing any of this:
What we do have for you today is a simple idea repurposing a natural wonder of fall.
This idea can be done as simple or elaborate as you choose. Â I chose to let Anna and Lauren do most of the work on this one. Â We started with a nature walk to find the most colorful leaves.
I set the girls up at the kitchen table with their leaves and some contact paper and they went right to work.
I cut the contact paper into squares but you could experiment with different sizes and shapes.
Simply lay the contact paper sticky-side-up and stick the leaves onto the paper with the pretty-side-up. Â As soon as they were satisfied with their sun catchers we stuck them up onto the windows.
We love coming home to our newly decorated porch.
