It's been a tough week for those living in the northeast, and our hearts go out to the families who were affected by the storm. We thought we'd try to find a silver lining by offering ideas on art projects using all of the leaves that have now fallen to the ground. These are great projects whether or not you have power!
Build/Make/Craft/Bake shows us how to make hammered leaf art. Try this with a few leaf varieties, frame them, and voila, you have a beautiful art series.
We love this idea for helping kids create their own leaf art from Kpokotak.
Lorajean shows us the easy steps to creating this gorgeous leaf garland. We like it on a mantel, around a banister, or to adorn the front door!
Add a little romance to your storm candles by making leaf votives, as shown to us by Rex & Regina.
My Owl Barn shows us how to make fun bugs and other creatures using a variety of leaves. We think these would make terrific holiday decorations!
Martha Stewart uses leaves as templates to make vintage paper wreaths. How elegant!
