We have made a lovely Autumn wreath made with handprint leaves.
I love the colours of Autumn and wanted to make something with the girls to start them thinking about the season. In school I have always used hand prints to make leaf shapes and then used them in a variety of different crafts throughout the year – varying the colour depending on the season. They look particular good in Autumnal colours and I would often use them to decorate my classroom at the start of the school year. We used craft foam to make our leaves. You could use real leaves of course or card painted in the right colours. We also used a paper plate for the base.
