Marie LeBaron from "Make and Takes" shares a craft using the leaves that have fallen in the yard.
It's artwork that's just in time for Thanksgiving.
What you'll need:
10-15 dried leaves
4 × 24" piece of craft wood,
Orange craft paint
White craft glue
Paint your piece of wood with orange craft paint. Let this dry.
Using the photo as a guide, use your pencil to write "THANKFUL" in all capital letters on your painted board. Make sure the letters are evenly spaced across the board.
Trace the pencil letters with your white craft glue.
Make sure each part of the letters is covered in a line of glue.
In a large bowl, crunch up your dried leaves. Try to get them as small as possible.
Sprinkle your crushed leaves onto your glue, shaking it around slightly to get each part of the glue covered in leaves.
Shake off any excess leaves back into the bowl.
Let your board dry overnight.
