I have this thing about leaves. I just love them. They are one of the reasons I love fall so much. [Have you ever stood outside towards the end of fall on a sunny day when the wind is blowing so hard that leaves just rain down around you? It's glorious.]
Anyway, leaf prints [like on this wall hanging] are a great way to capture the random beauty that is fall! They are super easy to make too [cuz' God does the hard work... you are basically just recording it!]. Here's a quick little tutorial on how to make them...
Here's what you do:
Paint the BACK of the leaf [not the smooth front side... you want veins, etc.].
Place the painted side down on your fabric and then put the paper towel on top of it, and roll over the entire leaf.
Remove paper towel and peel the leaf off. And you've got a leaf print!! That's it, folks... so easy.
This idea could be taken in soooo many directions. For example, I also made a leaf detail on linen napkins for a little touch of fall. So easy and fun! Well, now it's your turn. Gather some leaves and make your own prints too :)
