Picture from leaves
To make a large picture of the leaves, it is enough to collect various leaves, dry them and develop patterns.
Which leaves are suitable? Any.
You can choose a variety of colors, as well as color assorted. For example, a yellow maple leaf in green speckles.
Consider how to make a lion and a fish. For such a kind of panel with their own hands will come in handy the following materials:
- a sheet of cardboard of the appropriate size (but with the format can not be overdone, otherwise the frame of leaves, which we will use in the natural size of the leaves to the craft, will look small);
- a lot of fake yellow leaves for crafts (it is desirable to collect separately, so that the color and size of all the leaves roughly coincide);
- bright colored paper, where there must necessarily be red, yellow and black colors (can be replaced with paints, but with paper looks more natural);
- pencil to sketch the pattern on the cardboard, hence, and the elastic band to correct possible shortcomings, a black marker to complete the outlines;
- leaf twigs for crafts, which we use as a mustache for a lion;
- one chestnut.
How to make a picture of the leaves
Crafts from the leaves themselves will be performed in the following order:
- First, on the cardboard sheet, we glue the yellow paper, but you can simply paint it with yellow colors;
- Draw a pattern for the main detail of the lion, which will display its outline of the head;
- then draw all the other elements - eyes, nose, eyebrows, ears;
- when the picture of the leaves is ready, cut out;
- after we cut out the hand-made articles from the leaves, we draw the marker with a marker, receding from the outline about 3 mm, the line in black. It is desirable to try to withstand the same thickness. Cut out the appropriate details - the nose, the tongue and all the elements of the muzzle, glued to the surface;
- The nose can be made to the size of a chestnut by gluing it on top;
- then glue the antennae, but you can pre-drill a hole in the cardboard with a needle, where the twigs will be inserted. Do not forget to put the pointers in the punctures before that. It is also important not just to insert a mustache, but also fix them with glue;
- Now we take the leaves of the lime tree for our homemade work with our own hands, which were pre-dried (it is possible to postpone this process by gluing "fresh" leaves, but they may not hold properly).
Similarly, you can make a fish, and these crafts are used by attaching the needle to the wall. Excellent hold on the wallpaper, and no traces left after removal.
