        Last fall I gathered up my children and we took a walk in the woods to decorate our house. We gathered broken tree branches, cattails, shafts of wheat, pine cones and various kinds of seed pods. I bought a $1 straw wreath at the dollar store and attached the various seed pods and leaves (from your preserved leaf page!) onto the wreath. It came out awesome.
