Autumn Anyone?

I've been having the urge lately to add some seasonal decor to our home. Especially our mantel. But you know me, ever on the lacking budget. So I got very excited when I was reading teh Centsational Girl's blog!
She posted pics of this gorgeous wreath she made from leaves on her magnolia tree. I don't have a magnolia tree, but I do have plenty of rhododendrons. To further save on my budget I cut a ring out of a cardboard box, spraypainted my leaves with copper that I had left over from my frame project, and hot glued them onto the ring! Then I just added a couple of pretty red accent leaves and hung it on an existing nail over the mantel.
Voila. Autumn in under 10 minutes.
