leaf art silhouette

Creating artwork out of leaves is an easy eco-project for kids and parents to do together!


  • Large leaf
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Two pieces of plastic binder clips


  1. Decide what design you want to silhouette. You can print out a picture from the Internet or trace a person’s profile from a photo.
  2. Cut your design out and place it on top of the leaf. Trace it lightly with a pencil onto the leaf.
  3. Cut out the shape, leaving the stem of the leaf intact.
  4. Frame it between two pieces of plastic, and use binder clips to keep the pieces together.
