Fall is right around the corner! I just love this time of year. The air is starting to cool, and the leaves are beginning to change. Today we have a beautiful watercolor leaf wreath to share. This Fall leaf craft is great for preschool, kindergarten, and up. Use the free template included to make your own leaves before the leaves start changing outside!
Super cute and fun to make fall craft for kids using printable leaves leaf template to make a leaf wreath. The fall crafts for kids toddler and fall crafts for kids preschool is easy to make, but makes a beautiful easy homemade fall decorations .(free printable leaves)

We just have a few leaves changing outside right now, but we really wanted to make a Fall leaf wreath. We also love to paint with watercolor, so I figured we could make our own colorful leaves.

The leaves go on a paper plate to make them into the wreath shape, and then you can add more decorations to make it festive. We chose a scrap piece of burlap ribbon, but glittery pumpkin stickers, mini pinecones, or wrapped yarn would be pretty too!

Fall Craft

free leaf template


  • Fall Leaves Template
  • watercolor paint and a paintbrush
  • scissors
  • double-sided tape (or regular tape)
  • optional: additional decorations (ribbon, fall-themed stickers, mini-pinecones, acorns, etc) and a way to attach it to the paper plate (some things may need hot glue)
First, print the Fall Leaf template. We printed one copy for our wreath, but if you would like to make many leaves and have them overlap for a "fuller" look, you may print more.

Use watercolor paint in fall colors to paint the leaves on the template to your liking.

Use double-sided tape on the back of the leaves to attach them to the plate. We didn't have double-sided tape so we used rolled regular tape. You may also use glue, but we wanted to use tape to be able to reposition the leaves as we attached them in case we needed more or less room.

Now the wreath is complete! You can leave it as is, or you can add additional decorations.

We chose a scrap piece of scrap burlap ribbon and hung the wreath on the door.
