Make a pretty centerpiece or mantel decoration by layering seasonal materials in clear glass cylinder vases. We started with corn kernels, then added burgundy cockscomb celosia, orange bittersweet, pale green dried hops and brown oak leaves. Top with a rust-color pillar candle. Change candles if the flame gets close to the dried material, or use a battery-powered candle for safety.
Cover artificial pomegranates with copper leaf for festive decor that will never spoil. Just insert wooden skewers into artificial pomegranates. Coat each with adhesive size. Stand skewers upright in a piece of Styrofoam; let pomegranates dry until tacky (about 7 minutes). Following manufacturer's instructions, apply sheets of copper leaf until pomegranate is covered (approximately 2 sheets). Repeat with each pomegranate. Display on a tray, in a bowl, or on a cake stand.
Make the Wreath: Draw a 3-inch-wide maple leaf shape on a piece of cardboard and cut out to create a stencil. Trace on original pages (or, if preferred, photocopied pages) of a vintage book—consider a fall-themed title or mystery novel—and cut out approximately 100 leaves with decorative scissors that have a "torn paper" edge. Attach book page leaves to maple leaves with hot-glue. Attach layered leaves to a 16-inch wreath form with hot-glue, layering and overlapping them as you go. Hang with burlap ribbon.
