One of my favorite items to craft with this time of year are fall leaves. With all the natural colors and textures, it only makes sense that we’d gather a pile for our crafting adventures. That is after the kids jump in them, anyway. The only problem with using real leaves is that they crumble and disintegrate easily once they dry. As such, you can make any of these crafts more permanent by using artificial leaves. But that also takes some of the fun away, in my opinion.
If you’re looking to start crafting with fall leaves before they’re covered with snow, look no further than these 20 Fall Leaf Crafts. Below, we have ideas for leaf lions, suncatchers, turkeys, owls, stamped leaf shirts, garlands, and art projects. All taking inspiration from the wonders of nature.
