Materials for fall leaves hanging:
- various leaves
- ligh blue acrylic paint
- nail art tape (white and gold)
- washi tape
Step by step instruction to craft:
Step 1: Create your design
Start by deciding how your hanging will look like; since I found mainly 2 types of leaves I decided to leave the bigger and orange ones on the center and place the smaller darker ones on the sides. Experiment various grouping options until you’re happy of the look.
Step 2: paint leaves
Paint all of your leaves’ end with light blue paint, trying to make a straight line. If leaves are bumpy or curved you might need to paint them on the back as well.
Step 3: Decorative line
Next, I decided to finish up the smaller leaves with a decorative line of white nail art tape.
Step 4: Bigger leaves
The bigger leaves have much more space for decoration, so I decided to add 2 gold lines with a central white one. Gold is always a good idea.
Step 5: hang
In the end, hang them up on the wall facing downwards, like shown in the picture. Use two lines of a diagonally placed washi tape to keep them in place.
Well done! I think the result is very inspiring and adds a nice autumn accent to the home decor. You can also decide to hang them in different patterns or make a V shape or a garland shape: possibilities are endless!
