I’m really bad about recognizing natural materials as home decor. I think it’s because my parents made me rake leaves when I was little, and we had a ton in the yard, so I spent years of my life thinking of them as lawn garbage. When in doubt, blame your parents, right? This is a great idea from Jeanette – just grab a metallic Sharpie and get drawing. And where does the Mod Podge come in? You can seal these puppies with the Podge and they will last for YEARS. Just put several good coats on top. Then you can use them in mantel displays, for wreaths, bookmarks . . . whatever you like.
