We have been having beautiful autumn weather here.
So I thought of a perfect crafty project to help extend the colors and feel of this season.
The instructions below can be used for a Thanksgiving garland, an autumn themed table scape or any thing where a leaf-like shape is needed.
Collect some paper towel rolls.
Flatten a roll.
Cut it into 1/2 inch - 1 inch pieces.
Add glue around the edge.
Adhere it to a piece of card stock or a cereal box.
Let it dry and cut it out.
Cut around the leaf shape.
Adhere it to another piece of card stock/cereal box.
Let it dry.
Cut around it.
Prime it with gesso or paint it with white acrylic paint.
Paint it a color of your choice.
draw on it with a waterproof marker.
Pierce a hole through the sides of each leaf.
Use a large-eye needle to thread a ribbon through it.
Make a knot after each leaf in order to secure it in place.
