Autumn Leaf Art

This project will help observation skills learning about different leaf shapes, colour and size.


  • Cardboard or stiff paper
  • Selection of different autumn leaves
  • Glue stick and a Pencil


  1. Draw an outline on the cardboard or paper of the picture you want. (Suggestions: a face, a tree, an animal or flowers.)
  2. Place glue onto the surface area you are working on and place the leaves onto the glued surface.
  3. Try using similar coloured leaves to build up areas. Some leaves I have cut in half to fit in with my picture. I also used a daisy for the eye. Experiment with different colours and shapes.

Have fun creating your own autumn art work.
