Autumn is definitely here and when you are surrounded by an abundance of leaves in the most amazing colours, it seems crazy not to do something with them. There are so many fun crafts you can do with autumn leaves that kids will just adore getting involved in. I’ve got a fun idea for a craft which I plan to do soon but in the meantime, I have collected 7 fabulous autumn leaf crafts that you can make today. Most of these crafts don’t require anything special but instead can be done using stuff you have lying around the home. Just get the kids to gather a bagful of leaves each and get started:
Paint your leaves and make fun animals. The shapes of the leaves are so great for making all kinds of animals and the stems are the perfect ready made noses or tails.
Instead of animal faces, you can just paint the leaves in pretty colours or patterns which is easier for younger kids to do. How stunning do the bright colours look and I’m especially loving the polka dots.
For a super sweet and simple DIY, how cute are these animal headbands? All you need is a handful of leaves, some kraft paper and a pen and you’re good to go. Easy and oh so cute!
This is another great idea for a craft using autumn leaves. If you’ve got paper punchers in any shape, you can punch out autumn leaves and then what you make with them is entirely up to you. I’m thinking collages, bracelets, bookmarks or anything at all.
For older kids looking for a bit more of a challenge, try embroidering autumn leaves – create faces, patterns or even stitch up a few leaves together to make a garland.
I love each of these autumn leaf crafts and can’t choose which one to try first! Have you done anything fun with autumn leaves? Do share in the comments.
