One of my fondest memories growing up was scouting the yard to find the most beautiful and unique leaves from the maple tree out back. I would collect as many cool leaves as I could find from the leaf piles and bring them inside so that my mom and I could create pressed leaves. It’s something I wish I could have done with my boys because creating memories like that are priceless.
Do you have any fall memories from when you were young?
Here is what you need:
Autumn Leaves (of different shapes, sizes, and colors)
Waxed Paper (two large sheets about the same size)
- Place your leaves on a sheet of waxed paper. Be sure to include random colors and shapes and leave enough room between leaves.
- Place the second sheet of waxed paper over your leaves.
- Cover with a towel.
- Iron the towel while carefully checking to see that the waxed paper is melting together, but not burning.
- Share your masterpiece with the world.
Put it in your favorite frame for fun fall decor!
