A Solution For The Pile Of Leaves

So, you rake up that huge pile of leaves. Now what to do. pick it up by hand? Shovel? Use part of an old tarp and rake the leaves onto the tarp. When you get a manageable amount of leaves on the tarp pick the corners of the tarp up and bring it to your trash to dump. Makes this task so much easier.

Leaf Wreath

asdadsasThis wreath is so easy to make. Use a dry cleaners coat hanger and bend into a circle leaving the top part that goes over the rod as is. Untwist the area of neck. Push undried leaves through and fill the circle. Twist back together and you can now use the the part that goes over the rod as a hanger. It is suggested that a few light coats of polyurethane be added – this will keep the leaves from crumbling. To change up the look – cover with a thick coat of spray paint.
