Jenna and I made a leaf garland this weekend using leaves we collected in our neighborhood. Here’s how we made it:
We painted the leaves with Modge Podge, let them dry and then flattened them overnight in a book.
The next morning, we painted them gold. This was definitely Jenna’s favorite part. We used a children’s metallic gold tempera paint that was really lightweight and didn’t cover the natural colors of the leaves.
And then we taped the backs of the leaves to the twine.
And then we placed the garland on our fireplace. All done.
