There's nothing that can make them stop.
You cannot beg a hummingbird to stay,
Why does it have to be that way?"
This is so true! Signs of autumn are showing all around us these days. I was recently at Pier 1 looking at some of their beautiful autumn selections. In addition, I spotted this "Harvest Flower Clip",
"A luxuriant leafy cluster seven inches wide is hand-painted and appliqued with gilded accents, beads, sequins and glitter. Fitted with a discreet clip, this starburst of autumnal brilliance will light up tables, garlands, wall hangings and—hey, you know exactly where it’ll work in your home. Snap one up now." I thought, "No, I don't think so". For $7.95, "Uh, I can make my own!"
I had everything I needed in my crafting supplies:

I wrapped three small leaves around the grouped beads
Then, I wrapped five or six larger leaves on floral picks around the smaller leaves and beads with floral tape. Brown floral tape would have been better, but I didn't have any. I added glitter glue to the leaves and let dry.
That's it! Quick, simple, and cheap!
And, I do know where this will work in my home . . . . .
How about you?
