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!

Leaf Craft

To make this super cute leaf craft you need the following materials:

  • fall leaf printable (below)
  • 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.

using watercolor paint or markers color the fall leaves

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

After all of the leaves are painted, let the page dry completely.

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. How pretty!
