I decided I wanted to do something with it; I hoped a couple of things, but I ended up using a few different leaves for making some projects that you might want to try as well.
How to Make Art with a Leaf
You can take a rubbing, which is what I did first. I did mine from the back because the veins were more pronounced back there.
I really wanted to draw on the leaves so I used paint pens, Sharpies and a chalkboard marker to make simple designs.
I really love this little guy. It came out pretty much exactly the way I imagined, which is pretty rare.
I hope this weekend takes you outside for a little nature collecting that turns into nature crafting (and if it does, grab a rock while you’re out there; you’ll need it soon).
If you do make any art with leaves this weekend (or any time!) I’d love to see it. Tag your photos with #ourdailycraft.
