Fun Fall Leaf Art


The leaves have only just started to turn here, but I wanted to share with you some fun leaf projects that you can keep in mind for when you have a yard full of leaves and are wondering what to do with them (apart from raking them).

1.  Arrange your leaves and laminate them to make a picture.

2. Organize them by colour and make pictures - maybe an apple, a bird, an arrow, a heart, a leaf rainbow, or even words.

3. Organize the leaves into a rainbow of colours and then sew them together to make a fall tapestry.

4. Arrange the leaves by colour and find the matching paint colours.

5. Rake the leaves to show the passersby some love with a big leafy heart or a beautiful spiral.

6.  Maybe just organizing leaves by colour is where its at. In which case you could arrange them into a circle like a glowing sun, or an arc, or into a bar of leaves, or a line.

7. Now here is where we get fancy - and maybe even move indoors to get some supplies like glue and pens and scissors.  You can make art with your leaves by arranging them into pictures, drawing or painting on the leaves, or even cutting silhouette patterns in the leaves.

Aren't they amazing? It makes me want to get out there and have some fun with leaves when they turn colours. Are you inspired?
