Day #291 – Fall Leaf Prints

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Yesterday you may have seen that we went on a nature walk. We collected a bunch of leaves and decided to use some of them to make some fabulous leaf prints. It is really easy.

Next, you paint the leaves a variety of colors. It’s OK to let the paint mix a bit. It’s OK to not use fall colors. We wanted to use a unique version of all colors, which I love.

Next, press the leaves paint size down. Press all the areas of the leaf flat.

Pull back slowly.

And there ya have it. A beautiful leaf print.
