Our backyard is littered in colorful mulberry leaves—a reminder that despite the constant temperature fluctuation, Fall is here in North Carolina. Making your own Kirigami leafs are a great way to bring Fall inside. They look great placed in windows, under candles, or strung together in a garland.
These leafs pictured here were created by Jessica at Zakka Life. She followed these simple steps to create some great decor with few materials.
