Kirigami Fall Decorations

 

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_kyYaMHB4tGw/TKADd_rWWBI/AAAAAAAAFRk/lqWsg5MOJbE/s1600/leaf+kirigami+5.jpgJust when I thought the fall season was here, we get hit with 90 degree weather, ugh! But, that's not stopping me from decorating the house with leaves, pumpkins, and gourds. I run on a strict seasonal decorating schedule and if it's fall, then that's how I'm decorating the house. One of the decorations I'm using this year are these kirigami leaves. You can place them on windows, tuck them under candles, or string them together to make a garland.

Below you'll find directions and four templates to make the kirigami leaves.
