These beautiful leaves are simple to make.  You should really let your imagination run wild!

This recipe is from my Fall 2014 issue -- you can instanly download the issue HERE!

You will need:

Fall Leaves

Sharpie Paint Pen (we used white, but a metallic could be beautiful too)

  1. You can approach this two ways, either research motifs online or just doodle and draw and let things unfold naturally.
  2. The flatter the surface, the smoother the drawing will be. Pre-press leaves if possible to minimize wrinkles.
  3. Once you've drawn on your leaves allow them to dry completely.


You can use these leaves in a centerpiece, on a table, mail them to a friend, or use them to embellish wrapped gifts.
