Introduction

Elegant textures -- clay and velvet, bark and soft berries -- and rich autumnal colors add up to subtle sophistication.

These stylish branches and flowers are beautiful enough to have come from nature. And they're so easy to make: Just attach pom-poms to twigs or sew on velvet petals to make dahlias.
