Fall Leaf Frame

I love making crafts with natural items, especially in the fall.  Making a leaf frame with a few of the pressed leaves that I had stored was at the top of my craft list.   Don’t you love how it turned it out. It was a perfect project to do while sipping a cup of coffee and listening to the news. Here’ what you will need:

  • Pressed leaves in various colors and sizes
  • Frame with flat sides (I forgot to take  picture of the actual frame that I used. The one below is just to show you the type needed).
  • Mod Podge  (I have seen miniature bottles at Five and Below for a $1.50, which will be sufficient for this project).
  • A brush or sponge

Creating your frame is simple.  However, the hardest part is waiting for it to dry so you can add your favorite fall picture. If you don’t have pressed leaves available, set a day aside to go on a nature hunt.  Collecting leaves with your children or grandchildren is the perfect fall activity.

Once you gather the leaves and other materials here are your next steps:

  • Start at the bottom and place your leaves around the frame so you can get a feel of where you want them before you coat them.
  • Once you’re satisfied with the placement, coat the front and back of each leaf and place it where you want it on the frame.
  • When all of the leaves are in place, cover all of them with a good coat of Mod Podge.
  • Allow the frame to dry about an hour.
  • Add your favorite fall photo.

This was a fun activity, and I’m sure your littles one will enjoy creating a frame and placing their favorite picture in the frame too.  You may also like:  Fall Kindergarten Activity Pack.

  1. Nicely done but I would never find colored leaves around here to do it with!

      Lol that’s right Kc, you have beautiful weather all year. It’s nice to experience spring and fall, winter I could do without. It’s fun searching for leaves with the kids.
