Toward the beginning of my blog, I made some fun sun catchers. I thought it would be fun to adapt this craft to make some beautiful fall leaves for the window.
I have a box of pretty battered crayons. I grabbed out a bunch of colors that represented fall leaves to me: brown, orange, red, greens, and yellow. Then, I laid down some wax paper. The wax paper needs to be twice as big as the size you want your leaf.
Then, I had my kids pick their colors and begin sharpening the crayons, letting the shaving fall randomly on the wax paper.
I then folded the wax paper in half on top of itself. I grabbed some paper to shield the ironing board and the iron. Next, I pressed (not ironed) the paper (with the wax/crayon sandwich inside). Let it cool and cut out your leaf shape. I just drew my leaves free hand and cut them out. If you would like to make a leaf stencil to be able to trace, here is a printable my wonderful husband made.
