Fall Leaf

Here's a fun Fall leaf project Bekah and I did recently. We took a paper bag and I drew a leaf shape on it. Bekah then used her crayons to color it with some Fall colors. Any colors would really be fine, however, I did notice the brighter the colors came out better.

After she was happy with her coloring, we used watered down brown paint to paint over the leaf.

Bekah was very good at painting the whole leaf brown!

Then let it dry. It took quite awhile.

After it's dry, cut out the leaf and crumble it.

Open it up and you have a beautiful Fall leaf that looks authentic. It looks like it has all the veins and colors of a real leaf.
