Look at these lovely fall beauties! What we have here are tiny autumn leaves mod modged to small rocks. Very simple, attractive, and quite seasonal.
The perfect autumn leaf craft!
Of course you could draw over them with metallic sharpies, as with the autumn leaf art we’ve done…
Am I getting carried away with seasonal crafting?
Will I get back to developmentally-appropriate, process-oriented kids’ art soon?
Yes, the answer is yes! And the answer is also, please bear with me, because I am enjoying this fall crafting binge like crazy and it’s a wonderful release after working so hard on the book.
A Fun and Easy Autumn Leaf Craft with Rocks
Gather your materials: small rocks, washed (the smoother and flatter, the better), Mod Podge, a small paint brush, small autumn leaves (I pressed and dried mine first—not sure if it’s necessary though—let me know if you try it without drying them first), and something to protect your work surface.
Step 1: Brush a layer of Mod Podge over the flattest part of your rock.
Step 2: Position leaf over wet Mod Podge.
Step 3: Brush another layer of Mod Podge over leaf.
Step 4: Continue with as many rocks and leaves as desired.
Step 5: Let dry.
Step 6: Pile in a pretty basket and admire.
Or, spread out and arrange as desired.
