Have the leaves in your area changed? We still have some left on the trees but many of them are bare already. Today I used a few of the leaves from my yard to make some feathers. These were so easy to make that I’m sure you don’t need a tutorial but I made one anyway.
Find some pretty leaves from in your yard. These ones were already dry and crispy.
First, cut the edges off the leaves. Second, make small diagonal cuts along the sides of the leaves without cutting through the midrib (the vein that runs along the center of the leaf). The way the scissors are positioned is not correct but I was trying to hold the scissors and take the picture. I actually made the cuts in the opposite direction. Third, enjoy your beautiful leaf feathers!
I’m not sure what I am going to use mine for yet but this would be a fun Thanksgiving craft project for kids! I can picture these three feathers tucked into a child’s hat or headband.
I hope you have a great weekend! Make sure you stop back on Monday morning because my birthday is next week and I have a fun giveaway planned!
