Autumn in Colorado Springs
Fall is in the air, and we are excited to spend another autumn in Colorado Springs. Leaves are changing color, the temperatures are dropping, pumpkins and decorations are creeping their way into minds and onto doorsteps.
Since we are busy decorating, we decided to share with you some quick and easy ways to turn your home into a fall time haven. Here is one money saving website we’ve found to make some great autumn decorations.
Here was our favorite from this website:
These mason jars cost less than $5 each to make and its a great activity for the whole family.
First, make sure the outside of your jar is clean. Wipe it gently with rubbing alcohol to get any grease and grime off the outside of the jar. The leaves won’t stick if the jar is oily or dirty. Then make sure your leaves are malleable. Bend them a little bit to loosen them up. Stiff leaves won’t stick either. If they are thin, fabric leaves, they should easily form around the jar. If they are real leaves, you may want to dampen them slightly (almost the way leaves become after it rains) to unstiffen them. You can also iron fabric leaves as well to loosen the fibers.
