Leaf People Picture
September 12th, 2010 by Craftylocks

This is a great seasonal craft for Autumn or Fall. You can create a person from the actual leaves, or to make it last longer, use leaf rubbings.

leaf-manI love the process of collecting the leaf rubbings. You need to find leaves that are not too dry or brittle to collect rubbings from. Lay the leaf or leaves on a flat surface and lay a piece of paper over it. Using a pencil or a crayon, color on top of the leaf and the texture from the leaf will create the picture on the paper.

Some leaves create a better image as they have more defined ridges on them – it is lots of fun to experiment to see which leaves create the best image.

Once you have lots of rubbings you can cut them out to create a picture. I like making a person as it is recognizable and easy to do, but each one will still turn out differently. You could even make a skirt out of leaves and dress the leaf person up.

The hunt to find items suitable for crayon rubbings makes this a very enjoyable art and craft activity for children. To see what else you can do with them have a look at our Crayon Rubbings Collage Picture.
