Once upon a time, I posted about printing with leaves as a perfect Spring craft, and I still stand behind that, only now after coming across this photo of some leaf and pod printing I did for a Jewish journal, I'd like to add that printing with leaves is a perfect Fall craft, especially when one omits the bright green and uses deep purples and blues! And if you're really adventurous, after trying your hand at printing on paper, get some fabric paint and make a gorgeous rustic table cloth or even a runner. So, depending on where you ilve, and whether there are leaves year round, now might be just the time to give this craft a try. Make prints to use as holiday cards, make tiny prints to use as place cards for your next formal get together, and if you make a particularly great one, take a photo of it, as I did in this case and use it many times over!
There are several ways to make leaf prints, and as you can guess I have tried them all, with the exception of actually hammering the leaf onto the fabric.......Ready to give this a try?
