You can find leave patterns here.
You will need 4 leaves....2 leaves of one color and 2 leaves of another color. Trace your leaf pattern on the papers (Sorry I forgot to get a picture of this step)
You will also need to cut out the letters to spell "Happy Fall"
[I am not able to do it free hand so I used cheap stencils I found at the dollar store but you can also print ones for free off the internet here. ]
With one of the unused pieces of paper you will need cut a a strip of construction paper. With the construction paper sitting in the portrait position cut a strip of paper.
You will cut one on the line making a large rectangle.
The other one you will cut below the line forming a smaller rectangle creating a framing look for the top of your sign.
[We cut our strip in a wavy line but you can cut it however you and your child decide]
Have your child put glue on the back of the smaller rectangle.....then....
Have your child flip the paper over and glue it on the larger rectangle...
Have your child glue the letters H-A-P-P-Y on the top smaller rectangle with the strip of paper at the bottom.
(Since I was doing this with little ones I found it helpful to cut out the letters before we started the project....I also put the glue on the backs of the letters for them to minimize the mess factor)
I put the glue on the back of the letter and just pointed about where the letter should go...They put it where they felt it looked good :) (That's what makes it unique right? ;) )
Put glue on the strip of paper and about 1/2 inch on the top of the sign (depending on how big your leaves are)
Once they get all the leaves glued on it is time to place the last few letters on it. Again, put glue on the back of the letters and point to where it needs to go (One letter per leaf)
Allow it to dry......then......
Hang it for everyone to see when they come to visit!!
