"So even thought winter is here, I am still on a Fall Decor kick! I wanted to create some letters to hang on our bedroom wall. Mine (not shown) has flowers, I wanted honey’s to be a bit more masculine so I opted for leaves! All you need is a leaf die ( or you can hand cut them, easy to do! ), and a letter. This is a very quick craft, and my nieces even made their own following along! Hope you will follow along and give one a try. " -Miranda
