Looking for ideas for creative leaf crafts for fall? Here are seven easy and simple leaf projects you can make in under an hour.
This morning I walked outside and gasped.
It wasn’t hot.
It wasn’t humid.
It was cool and light and rainy.
And as I watched, a leaf drifted to the ground.
My favorite season.
My favorite day.
My favorite minute.
That moment that you realize that fall in Texas is just around the corner. And so today on the first day of September, I want to celebrate with a few fall leaf projects. Next week I can’t wait to take you on a little tour and show you all the decorating I’ve been working on.
Here are 7 creative leaf projects for fall.
Seven Creative Leaf Crafts For Fall
1. Dyed burlap painted leaf pillow
These burlap pillows had seen better days.
They were damaged and a little sad and worn and pitiful.
Some people might have tossed them. But why? When you can dye them and paint them.
2. DIY Book page leaf wreath
The only thing cuter than a fall wreath is a fall wreath made from stuff you have just laying around the house. You don’t need a penny to make this wreath.
Just a few book pages and a wreath form.
You can see the entire DIY here (and a cost-free solution if you don’t have a wreath form).
3. Duck Tape Leaf Runner
The twins and I made this project together back when they thought about braces instead of boys.
It’s a fun project for a family craft night or a Thanksgiving table.
This runner is made from duck tape and cleans up so easily.
4. Decorating with paper leaves
I’ve decorated with book pages in so many different ways that I just grouped them all together here. There are so many ideas. Here are just a few of my favorites:
- Attach them to the side of a hutch with double-stick tape
- Decorate your mantel by scattering them
- Add a paper leaf to the top of a wood pumpkin
- Make a “falling leaf” tree with branches and craft paper leaves
5. Framed leaf project
I found these frames at Target and used them to turn leaves into art.
All you need is five minutes and a little yard shopping.
6. Stamped leaf pillow
Just when you thought that fall couldn’t go blue and white?
I have a few projects for you.
This pillow is made from stamping leaves onto a pillow form.
7. Scrapbook leaf pumpkin
And this blue and white pumpkin project is even easier.
All you need is a little scrapbook paper and some paint.
Just like cooler days and crisp mornings and sweater weather and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows.
And I couldn’t be happier. 🙂
PS These technically aren’t leaves, but this was one of my most popular projects last year.
