– Hot glue or double-sided tape for toddlers

First, stick a wooden skewer into each chestnut. They serve as stems and flower holders.

Autumn arrangement of homemade chestnut and leaf flowers

To bring out the flowers from foliage beautifully, you can make a decorative floral arrangement. Get a rustic looking vessel, such as a small tin tub, on which you will later build your flower arrangement. Take a large bath sponge and cut it to the shape and size of your container. Then cover the sponge with jungle grass or small stones for decoration. It would also be a good idea to put artificial lavender branches in the sponge and thus highlight the colorful foliage flowers nicely.

With the bright colors of the leaves, autumn is spreading in your home
