Fall Leaf Luminaries

I love luminaries--the soft warm light they give is a perfect mood-setter.

These fall-leaf luminaries were fun to make, and easy enough that I did it with my [young] kids.

First we went on a leaf-hunt around our yard, collecting various sizes and shapes (which in and of itself was quite fun).
Then I rolled up some scotch tape and taped the leaves to the bags.
Then I gathered up some toll paints and sponge brushes and away we went, painting all around the leaves. We made QUITE the mess, but we also had a great time, and I think they look great.

 Happy Fall!

Here's where we are linking up.
