Autumn Leaves Collage
April 18th, 2010 by Craftylocks

Paper leaves inspired by Autumn

autumn leavesIn the south island of New Zealand the trees are putting on a fiery show before winter hits. Today we wandered the garden and collected a few choice specimens to study (yesterday I raked up leaf piles and mixed them with cow poo for my compost – but not much paper crafty about that!!). We then searched through the paper piles and found papers that reminded us of the leaves and started creating paper versions of out autumn finds. This is a great way for children to use paper crafts to create some seasonal art – if you want to make this too – just follow the steps we took below.
