Fireplaces in the Fall

Posted October 22nd, 2010

One of the things that immediately sold me on our apartment was the old fireplace (built in the 1930's). It no longer functions, but it still brings a warmth to the living room that I absolutely love. It's now dominated by a massive flat screen above, but I still wanted to find other ways to decorate around it. I picked up these colorful leaves a few days ago and decided that they'd make a nice and simple garland. I secured the leaves with miniature clothespins and strung them on a piece of dental floss, which I secured with tape. I'm sure there are far classier ways to do this, but the whole process took mere minutes and the overall effect is quite nice.
