Leaf Collage- photos

Here is another fun and easy fall project. Make a leaf collage to bring the fall colors inside!

1. Start with a simple frame like a "clip frame" (shown here) or a poster frame. You want one where the glass or plexi and backing board will be held tightly together to keep the leaves from moving. If you choose a box frame you will have to tape it together when you're done.

2. Next collect and dry a variety of leaves.

3. Place white paper on the backing board and begin to arrange the leaves. Add and overlap them until you are happy with the arrangement. Try and put different colors next to each other so they all show up to their best advantage.

4. Put the frame back together and enjoy your new art creation!

    hi there... my kids always enjoyed making leaf collages by sandwiching them between two sheets of wax paper with an iron, you can throw some coloured crayon shavings in there too!
