  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

 

Materials Needed:

  • 8" X 11" Picture Frame
  • Leaves at Different Stages of Changing Colors

Instructions:
Collect the leaves that you want to use. Carren collected enough to create a picture that looked like a tree. Press them for 2 days to flatten and dry them.

Take the back off of the picture frame. You can simply use the blank, back side of the page in the frame or you can use your own piece of paper. Place the piece of paper on top of all of the picture frame parts ( the backing and the cardboard piece that comes with it to hold picture tight on in the frame). Arrange the leaves any way you like on the piece of paper.

Carefully put the glass on top of your arrangement and slip it all into the frame. Before you close up the back, make sure the leaves look how you want them. Hang and enjoy!
