Leaf Art House

  • Leaves (in a number of colours)
  • Scissors
  • Gluestick
  • White cardboard (or cardstock)

Crimson leaves look nice as pink bricks, however you possibly can completely swap this round relying on what shade leaves you discover. Brown bricks or shingles would look actually sharp too!

Step 2
Use scissors to chop small rectangular “bricks” from the leaves. Lay them out in your cardboard, forming a home.

Lower a rectangle from a yellow leaf to be the door. Rearrange and trim the bricks to fir the door in. I additionally lower a small circle from a contrasting leaf to be the door knob.

Step 4
Lower squares with one rounded facet to appear like roof shingles. Organize these above the bricks. Add a brick chimney on prime for those who like!

Step 5
If you wish to have home windows in the home, trim the bricks to create area for them.

Step 6
Use a gluestick to safe down the entire lower leaves. Trim across the completed home form and lower home windows into the cardboard – this may be achieved extra simply with a craft knife and slicing mat in case your scissors aren’t nice for smaller particulars like this.
