Previously, we created complex animal faces using fall leaves. This time, we decided to add limbs and feet using a fine-tip marker.
Before, we created animals from our fallen leaves. We added feet and legs to each animal before constructing a face with a fine tip marker.
They turned out wonderfully happy!! (In most cases)
Materials to make Leaf People:
- Leaves – best collected during a long nature walk. We pressed ours between a sheet of newsprint and a heavy book for a day.
- Paint – Puffy Paint or Chalk Markers.
- Markers to make the arms and legs
- Paper or Cardstock
- Glue to stick the leaves onto the paper. You can use regular glue or a hot glue gun
We added faces to our leaf people with puffy paint overnight before drying them.
We attached leaves to a loose paper to create our bodies with hands and feet the next day.
You can substitute any glue you choose for hot glue when applying leaves to your paper. I suggest adding glue to the leaves’ base before placing them on top of the glued paper. Use a runny glue for the best results.
I created leaf people while doodling in any position. I can draw whenever I please, which is why it’s logical that I drew away after completing my leaf people. Taking this into consideration, I plan to try out this idea! Results in tremendous therapeutic effects.
