Visual Art - Autumn Bunting

One of my favorite activities while growing up was pressing fall leaves between pieces of wax paper.   I grew up in Pennsylvania and knew which trees in my backyard produced the most vivid colors.  Patiently I would wait for God's handiwork to be on display each fall and then, selecting the best leaves before they fell to the ground, we would press them between pieces of wax paper.   The process was what I actually remember - not what we did with them afterwards, but I love this idea from The Artful Parent:

Try this easy craft activity created by The Artful Parent in celebration of fall and our CLIP book, Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert.  (See review below.)

Materials needed for this activity are:

  • Autumn leaves 
  • Wax paper
  • Iron
  • Newsprint or other paper
  • 1/2 inch ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Metallic Sharpies (optional)

This is an easy activity to share with your children while creating a lovely fall decoration for your home.
Please visit the Artful Parent website for the full tutorial.
