Turning Leaves Into Stamps

If you live in an area like me, your yard, neighborhood, and parks are probably covered in leaves. Let's make some beautiful art out of them!

Here's how:

What you need:

  1. Paint of your choosing

  2. Leaves

  3. Paint brushes

  4. Paper

1. Collect leaves of different shapes and sizes from your yard or park.

2. Paint the leaves any color you like, you can even mix it up and do several colors on one leaf. For the best results, use a thin layer of paint so it doesn't ooze out when you stamp it. I also recommend painting the backside of the leaves for the most detailed stamps.

I painted my leaves on a separate sheet of scrap paper to avoid getting any excess paint on my final paper.

3. Use your leaf as a stamp! You do this by turning your leaf over and pushing it down with your fingertips. Be sure to get all of the edges so you get a full leaf stamp.

That's it! Now you have some fun fall decor for your house, and a fun activity to do with kids of all ages.
