Tie an autumn leaf (real or faux) with raffia around candles, place on a holder on seed corn (or popcorn kernels - or acorns) in tube glass or hurricane vases - arrange assorted sizes on a tray for a centerpiece
large maple leaf from smaller leaves art project. I kind of love this! It would be an easy way to display all of the Fall "treasures" that get brought home. Maybe on a poster board with a large leaf outline drawn on it?
