Create your own autumn leaf print
duration: 0:0:23

With autumn’s falling leaves, now is the perfect time to get creative. Here’s an art print inspired by the season’s magical colours.

You will need:

  • Leaves from the garden
  • Resene testpots in your choice of colours.  We used Resene Ayers Rock, Resene Lightning Yellow, Resene Poppy, Resene Persian Red and Resene Kamikaze
  • Testpot brush
  • Roller (optional)
  • A4 card
  • Hole punch
  • Dry branch
  • String and scissors
  • Roller (optional)

Step one. Paint the leaves using the paintbrush and Resene testpots. If you have a roller, use it to press the leaves onto the card. Otherwise use your palms. Leave to dry.

Step two. Punch holes on either side at the top of the card, and string onto the branch to make a hanging rod.

Step three. String the top into a triangle formation, and hang. If you find red leaves on your walks, add them to your new print.

Top tip: Add other foraged items to your decorated room, such as twigs and small branches.  These can be left natural or painted with Resene testpots to suit your room décor.
