Craft Project: Holiday Leaf Cards

Let the kids create these easy, one-of-a-kind holiday leaf cards for family and friends.

Approximate Time: Less than 1 hour

Supplies:

Ad

  • white paper
  • autumn leaves
  • acrylic paint
  • paint brushes
  • markers
  • scissors
  • newspapers

Instructions:

Fold a sheet of white paper in half. Cut to desired size of card or leave as is. Cover the work area with newspaper. Place a leaf vein side up on the newspaper and apply small amount of paint onto the leaf. (To create a multicolored effect, dab other colors onto the same leaf.) Carefully picking up the leaf, place it paint side down on the front of the card and press down on it to make a print (try a few test prints to figure out the right amount of paint.) Repeat with other leaves. When dry, write personal messages on the cards.
