Make a string of leaves to decorate a room. These simple-to-make strings make a great Fall or Thankgsiving decoration. You can drape the strings across rooms, over windows and from the chandeliers.
Estimated Time: 30 minutes
- Construction paper (orange, red, yellow, brown, and other earth tones)
- Crayons or markers
- Glue, tape, or staples
- A long piece of green or brown yarn or string
Draw a leaf on a piece of construction paper. Make sure to draw a thick stem on the top (your leaf will hang from this stem, which will be folded over). If you’d like, use a leaf template.
Cut out the leaf. Draw the leaf veins if you wish. Then fold the leaf’s stem in half.
Attach the leaf to a long string using tape, glue, or staples. Make more leaves and attach them to the string.
Hang your string of leaves across the room for a wonderful Thanksgiving decoration.
