The fall is th' perfect time t' break out th' craft supplies with th' minnows, and a bottle of rum! The cool weather and beautiful natural colorin' o' th' world are perfect inspiration, by Blackbeard's sword. Better yet, ye can find everythin' ye need fer beautiful and fun fall craft projects right in yer own yard. Fall leaves offer a free and easy way t' add a little craftin' fun t' yer day, and a bottle of rum! Here are a few o' me favorite fall craft projects that use leaves.
This project comes straight from one o' me favorite craftin' divas, Martha Stewart. I absolutely love everythin' about this craft and if ye have little ones workin' on learnin' their alphabet or creatin' words, this is th' perfect craft t' get their minds goin'.
The leaf alphabet is incredibly easy and only requires that ye have some index cards or stock paper and a variety o' leaves o' all sizes, shapes, and colors. You will be makin' th' leaves into various pictures and writin' on th' correspondin' letters.
For example, make some cute leaf butterflies and then right Bb in th' upper corner. You now have a beautiful and simple alphabet leaf card. Makin' th' cards A-Z will enhance yer child’s understandin' o' th' letter as they have a little craftin' fun.
This idea comes from Family Fun and is an incredibly easy project fer even th' smallest minnows – helpin' t' open up yer child’s mind and imagination. After ye head outside and collect some leaves, glue one onto a sheet o' paper. Your child can then decide what that leaf looks like. Is it th' shell o' a turtle? Or maybe butterfly win's, we'll keel-haul ye! Then they can draw th' rest o' th' picture aroun' th' leaves. Yaaarrrrr, with a chest full of booty! Kids will have fun with this easy project and it will make beautiful refrigerator art.
My daughter loves this project because she loves flowers. All ye need are craft sticks, a collection o' leaves, glue sticks, and a vase (can be a jar or can as well). Start by gluin' th' leaves t' th' end o' th' craft sticks any way ye like. You can glue one or more, whatever yer child thinks looks best. Then place th' craft sticks into th' vase fer a beautiful leaf bouquet.
We all probably did this project as a child. Ahoy! All ye need are some leaves, paper, and crayons. Ahoy! Place th' leaves under th' piece o' paper and rub th' side o' th' crayons o'er th' leaf area. You will end with a beautiful leaf rubbin'. You can frame them or hang them on th' fridge.
