Leafy Letters—My Name Garland

Leafy Letters—My Name Garland craft

Make a name garland of colorful leaves. Start your leafy letters with no-mess Color Wonder™ hand tracings.

  • 1.

    Look at your hand. Does its shape remind you of anything in nature? Notice how your palm almost looks like the form of some tree leaves.

  • 2.

    With the help of an adult, trace your hand on Crayola Color Wonder™ Paper with Color Wonder™ Markers. Outline several handprints so they are shaped like leaves. Make some with your fingers open to look like oak or maple leaves, for example. For others, such as elm leaves, close your fingers to make a pointed leaf. Create one leaf for every letter of your name.

  • 3.

    Write one letter from your name on each leaf. Fill in the background with Color Wonder Fingerpaint colors. Mix hues to make bright fall colors. Or make summery colors if you wish.

  • 4.

    Tear out each leaf. The edges may be a bit ruffled so they look real. Punch holes in the top of each leaf. Thread yarn or ribbon through the holes to spell your name. Hang your name garland in your room or on your door.
