Tissue Paper Leaves for Meals on Wheels



I made 50 of these tissue paper leaves for Meals on Wheels. They are just a little decoration for the Thanksgiving delivery.

They were easy to make and I thought they would make a beautiful fall garland or they would look cute glued on a place card for Thanksgiving dinner.

The supplies are easy to find and this would be a fun project for older kids while you are busy in the kitchen.

Supply List:

tissue paper in fall colors

scissors

white copy paper

modge podge

paint brush

large pieces of cardboard

leaf cookie cutter

black marker

scissors

fall colored rhinestones

Directions:



Cut some of the tissue paper into little 1-inch squares.


Using Modge Podge paint strips onto simple white copy paper and lay down the little pieces of tissue.  Use pieces of cardboard to lay the Modge Podge papers to dry.


Then Modge Podge over the top of the tissues.


Let the Modge Podge dry completely.


Turn the tissue side face down and trace a leaf outline with a leaf shaped cookie cutter.


Cut out the leaves and lightly Modge Poge the top of each leaf. 


Once the leaves are dry - they can be decorated with stick on rhinestones.


I also bought some brown rhinestones.


Each leaf is decorated a little differently because in nature leaves always look a little different. 


A bunch of these would look fabulous sprinkled all over a dinning room table. Or glued onto a greeting card.


I might make some for myself this weekend I want to make a garland!
