Autumn Decorations on a Budget

All right, well, I've procrastinated this post until it's probably too late to be useful to anyone, but here it is anyway.
In mid-October I took Sunbeam on a leaf-gathering walk; we also collected horse chestnuts and I would have gotten acorns too, except that the nearest oak tree I know of is a half mile away up a steep hill.  Then we came home and used them to make our house look festively autumnal.  I thumb-tacked a paper chain made from sturdy white paper across the top of the window, then used my mini-stapler to attach the leaves to it, trying to space out leaves of the same type to give a pleasant blend of colors and shapes.
