We are well into our autumn activities and crafts now in our home, and we are loving them! This weekend we got creative with some autumn leaves and did some rainbow leaf printing. This activity is one of my kids favourites and looks really pretty!
You will need – dry leaves, paper, paint in lots of different colours and paintbrushes.
Start off by painting strips in different colours onto a leaf then print (paint side down) onto the paper.
My daughter also painted patterns onto the leaves instead of strips, and the overall effect was very similar to tie dye. They looked very pretty!
These rainbow leaf prints are very simple, look super effective and make a nice change from the usual autumnal coloured leaf printing!
I think they would look brilliant cut out and mounted individually onto black card as celebration cards. (My dads birthday is fast approaching so he may well receive one of these beauties)!
Happy leaf printing!
