Fall Bouquet and Crown

Elsie Marley made a beautiful yellow leaf crown that I quickly became obsessed with. My attempt at it, with Baby crawling over me and Toddler grabbing at it, came out much less professional looking, but it was still fun. I followed Elsie's instructions: cut off stems, layer leaves, fold over a bit and whip-stitch with a needle and thread. It was not really sturdy enough, so then I whip-stitched a pipe cleaner in the inside, and it was better. Isla wanted to wear it upside down, which was also cute.

The color for Tuesday is red, and the Fall leaves in our neighborhood made a perfect bouquet for the dinner table.
