Depending on where you are, Fall may come upon you early. We all have the same calendar, but August marks a peculiar threshold. For some, it becomes a rally to savour the last bits of summer. Others impatiently wait for the return of Pumpkin Spice to all of their best pumpkin treats. Some interesting changes happen between the peak of summer hype and the impending onslaught of Autumn. We get peculiar mixes of climate as the season transitions; however, no fall element, even pumpkin spice, is equivalent to the iconic scene of stunningly brilliant autumn leaves.

My Favorite Transition

Whether you love full summer or full fall, there is something magical about these delicate transitional changes. I love to look forward to new things, but savouring the temporary gifts of the fluctuating seasons is what makes me the happiest. Everything is changing and it’s good to embrace change; however, it’s the metamorphic process that I like best. The time between summer and fall is a great negotiation I always love to take part in from summer shade to the brisk walks through colourful leaf-littered paths.

Autumn Colours in Paper Leaf Garland

Paper leaf garland is one of the best go-to ways to festoon any space with eye-catching decor. Whereas some decorations create a focal point for a scene within your surroundings, garland helps to transform an entire space and it becomes the connecting tissue for your decorated environment that holds the image together. The best thing about DIY fall paper leaf garland is, of course, the gorgeous fall colours that imitate the reds, oranges, and yellows of fiery and colourful autumn leaves. Easy craft paper makes for the best medium to display as elaborate a portrait as you wish with the right mix of these instantly recognizable shades.
