Tools & Materials

Steps

  1. Gather the tools and materials listed above.
  2. Score and cut your leaves out of kraft paper using a cutting machine (recommended). If not, print the pattern directly onto paper and cut it out with scissors or an X-Acto blade.
  3. Paint your leaves in desired colors using large, rough bristle brushes. Tips for painting multi-color leaves: brush on a medium tone color first, moving in one direction. Make sure that the brush isn’t too wet with paint by dabbing excess paint off on a scrap piece of paper first.
  4. Next, brush on a brighter, lighter tone of paint in a similar color.
