It’s already looking a lot like fall outside here in Oregon! What about where you live? As we transition into a new season, we thought it was only fitting to focus on ombré colors for today’s craft project. After all, ombré means a gradual change from one color to another. And since the leaves on the trees here are already starting to change colors, our designer Krista felt inspired to make these ombré oak leaf branches. Scroll down to see how you can create your own fall leaves with this beautiful ombré effect.
We love the look of ombré—and not just for hair. Ombré-inspired crafts have a really unique look. And they’re always so stunning! As far as this DIY project goes, you can easily create fall leaves with an ombré effect using different colors of crepe paper and PanPastel colors.
If you like making flowers and botanicals, having floristic crepe paper, floral tape, and floral wire will come in very handy. You’ll find everything we used to make these ombré oak leaf branches below. Of course, you can always explore with different colors, too. We just think these shades are perfect for fall. And they’re so vibrant! If you’ve been looking for fall decor to brighten up a room or add a splash of color, we think these ombré oak leaf branches look especially stunning next to neutral or natural hues.
