My favorite part of fall is looking at the beautiful colors in the trees.  I also love fall decor projects and other autumn crafts that allow me to infuse a little bit of that spectacular color palette into other parts of my life.  If you are a fall leaves lover as well, you will love these five fabulous projects!

This gorgeous leaf pillow by MJ at 517 Creations is a knockoff of a similar design sold by Wisteria for $89.  Hers is actually a pillow cover to dress up a drab old pillow, but with just a couple of extra steps you could stuff it to create an entirely new pillow.  [how to make an oak leaf pillow]

Have you seen the pretty fall leaf and pumpkin doilies at Dollar Tree?  Carolyn from Carolyn’s Homework used some to dress up plain envelopes for fall.  They would make a lovely way to present Thanksgiving event invitations!  [how to make fall leaf doily envelopes]

Meanwhile at Bugs and Fishes, UK-based crafter Lupin used yarn and gold paper to make a stunning fall wreath.  Her tutorial includes templates for several different shapes and sizes of leaves, so if oak leaves aren’t your favorite you can use a different type, or you can mix-and-match!  [how to make an oak leaf yarn wreath]

If you have a leaf paper punch, some fall-colored paper, and a sewing machine, you have everything you need to make this cute leaf garland by our good friend Care at Obsessively Stitching.  Adapt this idea to any season, holiday, or even by using different shaped punches and colored paper.  [how to make a punched paper leaf garland]

Linda from Burlap & Blue is the crafty mind behind this stylized felt leaf lace trimmed with a length of wide lace.  The golden color she chose is lovely, but I would also like to see this idea done in ombre!  [how to make a felt leaves and lace wreath]
