Leaf Rubbings 

This is an absolute favorite for my family! Its an easy craft and you can make it into a garland, placemats, or any kind of décor.  


You will need: 

  • White Paper 
  • A clipboard 
  • Crayons or colored pencils (pick pretty fall colors!) 
  • Leaves! 


  1. Place your leaf (veiny side up) on the clipboard and cover with the white paper. 
  2. Using the side of your crayon rub the paper and you will start to see the veins of your leaf.  
  3. You can cut these out for a garland or use a large sheet of paper and rub leaves to make a picture to use as a placemat! 


Gratitude Leaves 

This sweet craft will be one you will want to keep up all year! 


You will need: 

  • Polyform clay in different colors 
  • Rolling pin 
  • Leaf cookie cutters 
  • A straw (if you are going to hang them) 
  • Alphabet stamps or a paint pen 
  • Yarn (if you are going to hang them) 
  • Scissors 
  • A branch to hang them on (optional) 


  1. If you want a marbled look take a couple of colors of the polyform clay and mold them together in a ball.  
  2. Roll out the clay evenly. 
  3. Using the leaf cookie cutters, cut out the forms. 
  4. *if you want to hang them use the straw to cut out the hole at the top of the leaves.  
  5. If you have alphabet stamps use them to write out on each leaf what you are thankful for.  
  6. Bake them or let them dry according to the clay directions.  
  7. Either hang them or use them as décor! 


Fall tree luminaries 

You will need: 

  • Mason jars 
  • Tissue paper (yellow, red, orange) 
  • Brown construction paper 
  • Scissors 
  • Modge podge 
  • Paintbrush

  2. Do the entire mason jar with tissue paper before moving on. Let dry.  
  3. Cut out a tree silhouette with the brown construction paper and glue onto the front.  Let dry
