As you already know, I love autumn. So I couldn’t wait to start creating some DIY autumn crafts with Kory! Starting with this leaf picture.
One morning we decided we would have a walk to a cafe near where we live. On our way there, Kory spotted fallen leafs on the floor and he wanted to stop, look and pick them up. All the way to the cafe he was asking me questions about them, telling me all about the different colours and sizes of the leafs he’d collected. He wanted to keep them.
That’s when the idea came in to my head We’ll make a picture with them!
To make your own leaf picture you will need:
- Tissue/toilet roll
- Glue/Mod podge
- Small brush
- Picture frame
To start, I wrapped the leafs in some tissue to dry them out. Once they were dry, I cut a piece of paper to fit the size of our chosen picture frame and me and Kory got to work placing the leafs out on the paper where he wanted them. After Kory had decided where he wanted them (with a little help from me!) we stuck the leafs down by brushing on some mod podge on the paper and over the leafs. Once we’d finished doing that, I put the picture to one side and allowed it to dry. When the picture had dried, I wrote in the bottom right hand corner as you can see from the picture above and then put the picture in the picture frame. And that’s all there is to it. Quite easy really!
A nice, cheap and easy autumn craft. Kory got to keep his leafs and I got a lovely frame to decorate the house with.
I hope you liked reading about our DIY leaf picture. If you make one of your own, I would love to see it! Keep your eyes open for our next autumn craft idea…
