Fall Crafts and Decor Ideas, Low cost Fall decorations #Fall, #Crafts, Things to make out of a soup can
Directions:
1. Begin by applying a coat or two of white craft paint to the jar or can. Apply as many coats as you wish for the coverage you desire. Remember, the holder will be mostly covered with the leaves, so you don’t need the paint to be perfect.
2. Snip the leaves free from any branches or stems they are on. You will only need the leaf itself for this craft. Apply some glue generously to the back of the leaf, and press it to the can or jar. Hold it in place until it is secure.
3. Continue layering on leaves until the jar is coated all the way around. As you can see we left a little space at the top of the jar.
4. Finish the utensil holder by wrapping a length of twine or ribbon around the jar and tie it into a bow.

Once your glue is dry, your frugal fall utensil holder is ready to be used. Simple slide in any spoons, utensils, even office supplies if you wish. It is the perfect tool for staying organized while being festive at the same time.

Gather your supplies and give this frugal fall utensil holder a try!

Bring your water to a boil, gently drop the peaches in.  If they are still a bit green (not quite ripe) you will need to boil them a bit longer.  But a peach that is ripe and ready to eat only needs to be in the boiling water about 45 seconds to a minute.  Quickly take the peach out of the pot and put it in ice water. It will cool very quicly since it has not been in the hot water long enough to cook, it just loosens the skin.
