These cute leaves are so much fun to make and simple enough for the whole family. Each one definitely has its own personality! Who is your favourite?!

Why not collect some dried leaves on a beautiful autumn walk today? Just make sure they are clean enough to use.


  • Dried leaves
  • Acrylic paint: white & black
  • Paintbrush


  1. First paint the leaves white, this can take up to three coats of paint. You can speed up the paint drying with a quick blast (by an adult) under a hairdryer.
  2. Next paint on the eyes and the mouths using black paint. Have fun with their expressions. 
  3. To display, you can hang throughout the house or peg to a string to make a garland.
