Autumn is my most favorite season, mainly because of the cooling, crispy air, changing leaves and the anticipation of the holidays. The one thing I also enjoy is decorating our house to celebrate the season. Sometimes, though, I like to have decorations that do double duty; in other words, ones that we can keep out from September until November and that can work for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. Today’s how-to will do just that! Hurray! Thanks to the lovely and creative folks at Better Homes & Garden, we can all easily learn how to make this festive, literary centerpiece. Happy fall, HomeJellies!
