I’ve been going to post this for more than a week now, but it’s been busy around here. Trying to get ready for a craft show, house falling apart, trying to kill our dryer, ya know, the usual. I am still considering what to do with this space, but for now I have decided to keep using it as I was.
I still smile just to look at these, especially when the windows are open and they are fluttering. Happy little leaves that have my heart in them.
One afternoon we just NEEDED to do something. No netflix, no ps3, just occupying them with something. So we made leaf garlands.
First have some cute kids color pages of paper for you. Let them go wild, or in the case of my daughter, not wild, but very controlled rectangles, either way, let them color!:)
After they have colored a bajillion and two pages, cut them into strips. And then fold the strips in half, and cut whatever leaf shape you want. I also had a sheet of gold glitter cardstock, and so we added gold leaves also.
Turn them upside down,and hot glue them to twine, or string, or thread, or whatever floats your boat.
We made so many leaves we were able to make 2 for us that are over 6 ft long, and one for Nephew C’s mom to hang up at his house.
