Earlier this month, my son’s teacher read his class a story about going on a leaf hunt. He was so excited about the book that he kept asking me to take him on a leaf hunt. So one beautiful fall day, we set out on a leaf hunt around our yard.
We collected so many beautiful leaves, that I wanted to find a fun project to make using our leaves. I came across this adorable leaf suncatcher on Pinterest (http://buzzmills.typepad.com/blog/2013/10/preschool-project-embroidery-hoop-leaf-suncatchers.html)
The materials needed to make this project include:
- Contact paper
- Embroidery hoop
Then I peeled one of the sheets of contact paper, laid it down sticky side up and placed one of the embroidery rings on top. I had my son choose a few of the leaves and press them into the sticky paper.
Next I peeled the other sheet of contact paper that I had cut out and placed it over the ring and leaves, sticky side down. I put the other piece of the embroidery ring over the contact paper and secured it shut.
