  • Go outside and find some leaves. Try to find different shapes and sizes
  • Add a thin layer of glue to the board or cardboard
  • Glue the leaves down with the bumpier side face up
  • Add a thin layer of glue on top of the leaves. Use a foam brush or q-tip to spread it thin
  • Place the foil on top of the leaves. Using the meat of your finger, gently press the foil onto the leave. Do not use your nails or the foil will tear
  • Once the foil is completely flat and resting on the boards, trim around 1” on all sides
  • Fold the remaining foil under and tape it down on the backside
  • Using the side of the sharpie (do not use the sharpie point directly down or the foil may tear)
  • Color the leaves using your sharpie
  • Frame or place on an easel to display
