Fall Leaf Hanger

So Simple
Here's a fun finger painting craft your children will love helping you make.



What you'll need:
-White Poster Board
-Red, Yellow and Green Finger Paints
-Raffia
-Stick
-Leaf Stencil

The how to:
-Drip the finger paint in different places all over the white poster board and have your
children spread it around with their fingers.

-Let it dry and then do the same thing to the other side.




Once the paint is dry take your leaf stencil and trace it onto the board.
(I used a leaf cookie cutter as a stencil.) Trace nine leafs.



-Cut out the leaves and punch holes in the tops and bottoms of each leave
except for the bottom row. (punch only one hole in the top of the leave)

-Use the raffia to tie the leaves together. (Three rows of three leaves.)
Then tie each row to the stick.



-Tie the raffia to each end of the stick to make the hanger.

For some personal charm, add some some pictures to each leaf.
