Autumn is nearly here! What I love about Fall is the cozy indoor weather, having cups of tea and watching the colourful leaves covering the ground. But apart from leaves, there are some other stuff falling from trees like pinecones, Kastanien (chestnuts) and acorns, which are great to collect them for home/office decoration, don’t you think? And well, even if they don’t fall from trees, but is the major icon for Fall: Pumpkins! Below there are ideas which I hope they inspire you using dry leaves, pinecones, chestnuts, acorns, pumpkins and even seasonal fruits (crafts you can do with/for your Kids, as well!)
