I used a vintage button that reminds me of an acorn to tie it all together. Pin to your shirt or jacket for a splash of color and a ton of compliments. 

Thanks to my friend Chris Sheets for modeling the corsage. You look great!

Secure it to your hat, scarf, purse . . . whatever needs a new look for the season. Dress up your home for the holidays—pin them to your drape tiebacks, napkin rings, or make an autumn wreath.

Take a tired old hair clasp and give it new life by gluing a felted leaf directly onto it. I used white craft glue and a 99-cent barrette to make this designer coiffure clip.

Use a barrette that is the exact size of the leaf for a custom look. A glue gun versus craft glue is best if you have one.


You can never have enough glue! Take the time to hold the leaf to the clip until it sets a bit.
