We found this idea last week and thought it would be a fun project. Start by collecting different shaped leaves and a sturdy stick (we used our arm, hand to elbow, as a measurement). Wrap your stick with colorful yarn or string. Press your leaves in a heavy book. After about a week, take them out, paint one side, and let dry. Use fishing line and a needle to tie the leaves onto the wrapped stick. Hang to display. Be careful not to tangle!
