We had high winds here in North Carolina the last few days. The leaves are changing and falling, they looked so beautiful! And then, a little snow storm hit and knocked a ton of leaves off the trees and all over our yard.
I woke up to a huge pile on my deck this morning and just couldn’t resist making something great out of them! I threw together this super easy craft Fall Leaf Tree from leaf remnants from my porch piles! Here’s how I did it, so you can make one too! #Fall
Fall Leaf Tree
- Leaves in various sizes from long to short and fat to skinny
- 1 sheet of poster board
- brown spray paint
- hot glue and gun
Roll your poster board into a cone shape and decide the thickness and length. Hot glue the outer flap edge to the cone.
Start gluing the leaves around the bottom of the cone. I used short fat leaves on the bottom edge and inter twined them to cover the cone. The next layer I used larger leaves. Add them in a row to cover the areas where the stems are for the last row. Repeat.
Think of this like a puzzle, placing leaves in between each other to fill the gaps. About halfway up the cone, I used long thin leaves, placing them really close together.
For the tree top, I folded two leaves that naturally curled inward and glued them together. And that’s it!! I love it! It’s so pretty on my mantle. Too bad I will have to take it down for the holidays! Who knows, I may just add some snow and repurpose it for my holiday decor! Enjoy!
