Have you noticed the leaves beginning to change colors? The vibrant red, orange, and yellow leaves are one of my favorite aspects of fall so I thought why not bring a little of that indoors.

What better way to do that than with a simple crafting session with the kids. Read on below to see how we made our own fall leaf garland.

What You’ll Need

What to Do

Begin by tracing out several leaves on your watercolor paper.

Next, cut them out and prepare your area for painting. Take out your paints and brushes and protect your work surface (we placed paper plates on our table so that the children could paint directly on the plates). You may also want to protect your little ones’ clothing with art smocks.

After painting each leaf, we sprinkled (or, let’s be honest, poured, glitter on the wet leaves.) If you aren’t feeling up to the glitter clean-up, though, feel free to omit this step. 🙂

The kids had so much fun painting and glittering all afternoon!

Once the leaves are dry, turn them over and tape them to your yarn.
