fall foliage floating frame diy
Make this beautiful autumn/ fall wall art using golden leaves and a bit of creative calligraphy using this step by step tutorial below.
Fall comes and goes annually but after 15 years living in Canada, I finally preserved a little bit of fall and turned it into a part of my home decor. I collected all my leaves off my neighbour front yard, where they own a beautiful Japanese Maple tree; that would turn orange/ red once the temperature dropped to around 15 degree Celcius and pressed/preserve them in a frame and have it as a background for a calligraphic quote I hand-lettered on the top of the glass. This is my first tutorial I write for A Grateful Note and possibly is my favourite project to date.
Fall is my favourite season. Fall signified the day I landed in Toronto, where I begin my new journey to become a Canadian after leaving everything I have ever known and had 14,000 km across the world . It was my first time seeing autumn, as the fall foliage was something I would never see in Vietnam. It was fascinating walking around James Park in the weekends, seeing the leave changing colours and feeling the crisp cold air on my face, Fall is magical; it is the season of harvest and the season of love and is the season that exist to remind us things must end to begin again.
