Family Crafting: Fun with Fall Leaves

This past week, Fall seems to have come into full bloom in our part of the world! The landscapes are gorgeous filled with deep reds, yellows and oranges as the trees change colour. We couldn’t help but want to bring some of the beauty of Fall indoors with a simple family fall craft project! 
Follow along as we create a simple fall leaf bunting in five easy steps + have some of your own family fun along the way!
1. Go for a family walk to collect leaves of similar size and in a variety of different colours and shapes. Explore your neighbourhood or a local park to find as many unique leaves as you can.

1. Bring your leaves home and then press them {instructions here} in a book. Leave for a few days until completely dried. 
2. Using pages from an old book, cut out pennant shapes. Be sure to leave extra length at the top to be able to fold over and staple to create a space to string your banner. 
3. Once leaves are ready your favourite adhesive to attach your pressed leaves to each pennant.

4. Fold down the top portion of each pennant, secure with staples leaving enough space to string your banner. 
5. String your pennants and hang your lovely fall banner somewhere in your home to add a handmade  touch of Fall to your decor.

    I love how much yellow is in your header…it happens to be one of my favorite colors.

    The leaves are not fully colored here yet, they have just begun to change. I look forward to doing something like this with my husband who has always lived in a desert (even on his mission!) until now.
