Mabon, Autumn Equinox


Fall Bouquet

What you’ll need:
Fall leaves, pine cones, etc.
Popsicle sticks
Hot glue gun or craft glue
Styrofoam ball or clay

Flower pot
Fall colored ribbon (optional)

How to make it:

Bake it all for 45 minutes at 200 degrees to kill any insects and eggs.
Use the hot glue gun or craft glue to attach the leaves, seeds, pine cones, etc., to the ends of Popsicle sticks. If you use craft glue, let them dry.
Put the Styrofoam ball or large lump of clay in the bottom of the flower pot.

Stick the ends of the Popsicle sticks into the Styrofoam or clay to make your autumn leaves bouquet.

Tie the ribbon around the pot with a big bow, optional.

Acorn Wreath

What you’ll need:
Wicker wreath
Hot glue gun
Glue sticks
Flowers or other decoration

How to make it:
First, spread the newspaper on a flat surface.
Lay your wreath down flat.
Heat your glue gun.
Next, starting in the middle of the wreath, begin gluing the bottom of the acorn. Place the glued part of the acorn in the middle of the wreath and stand the acorn straight up.
Make one row in a straight line going all the way around the
wreath. Repeat the process from top to bottom with the
wreath still laying flat.
Then decorate with flowers, bows,
or even holiday ornaments. Be sure not to leave any open
spaces except in the back. The back of the wreath shouldn’t
have any acorns on it so when you lay it down it is flat.
Tips :A wreath hanger is recommended because it is very heavy


Candle Centerpiece
Turn a simple votive candle into a sophisticated display by adding nature’s bounty.

How to Make It
— Set a candle in an amber glass holder and ring the outside with moss, oak leaves, acorns, and red berries.
— Add sprigs of seeded eucalyptus (available at floral shops) for its fragrance and fresh gray-green color.





Attach leaves from your yard to a wooden or wire star frame. Then hang the wreath in a sunny window to get a beautiful translucent look during the day. You can weave in some clear lights to give it nighttime presence, too
