Fall in Southern California is beautiful--but it "leaves" something to be desired (pun intended) if you're used to the dramatic reds, yellows and oranges of traditional fall foliage. So, if you're yearning for fall in New England you may have to do-it-yourself by way of this fun technique that uses an iron, wax paper and bits of broken crayons to craft colorful translucent leaves. Your kids can do most of the work, but you'll have to pitch in for the ironing. The upside: you get a house full of beautiful fall leaves without any raking! Check out the step-by-step instructions.
