Leaf Rubbing Garland...A Yarny Kids Project!

We're switching gears a little today and doing something crafty with yarn...leaf rubbing garlands!  This fun kids project uses just a small scrap of fallish yarn and some things around the house.  Kids will love seeing the "magic" leaf images appear on the paper too!

What is Yarny Kids?

Yarny Kids on Fiber Flux is all about easy and fun projects to do to
gether as a family to introduce kids to the wonderful world of yarn and creating things with your hands! Click here for more Yarny Kids projects...

Here's what you'll need:
  • Crayons in fall colors (old ones are great for this project)
  • Fall leaves in lots of shapes
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Yarn
  • Hole punch (optional)

You'll use the sides of the crayon to make the rubbing, so peel the paper off,

Slip a leaf under a piece of paper,

Using the crayon, rub it over the paper to reveal the leaf underneath...kids love this part!

Make lots of them in different colors with different leaves,

Cut them out and punch/cut a hole at the top of each leaf,

And string them up!
