I‘ve been having a clear out and came across some leaves that I pressed last year.
I sprayed them with silver paint and they look ace. You could use them for all sorts of things – such as an autumnal garland or gift topper. I’m going to use mine as Christmas tree decorations (what do you think?).
The best thing is that they are cheap and quick to make.
I pressed my leaves in a heavy book. I put a single layer of leaves in between two tissues and then popped them in between the pages. Make sure you use an old book just in case any moisture seeps out.
Finally I took them outside to spray them – my spraypaint is a bit smelly. Make sure you put plenty of newspaper down – unless you want silver grass of course!
