Pressed Leaf Garland

Turn a fall nature walk, backyard expedition or day at the park into a material gathering party for this simple project. Even the littlest of little ones will want to join in to help bring a little bit of fall in doors.

  1. Gather leaves in the desired quantities, looking out particularly for colorful and sturdy ones.
  2. At home, press the leaves between the pages of a phone book and let dry for at least two days.
  3. Lay out string, yarn or ribbon of the desired length.
  4. Hot glue the dried leaves at regular intervals. If you don't have a hot glue gun, you can also tie the leaves on with short lengths of thread or twine.
