Celebrate Fall with a Folded Leaf Crown

Here’s how:
1.Find a small child.
2.Locate a park with a nice maple tree.
3.Encourage aforementioned small child to help you gather the prettiest leaves.
4.Make a leaf crown:


Fold a leaf lengthwise, about a half an inch from the center spine.


tear a small hole about an inch from the bottom of the center of the leaf with your fingernail.

Insert your next leaf into hole by its stem.

Fold this leaf around the fist one, and find your next leaf to add!

when the crown is the circumference of the small child’s head, overlap the ends and add a few more leaves, poking the hole through all the layers. You can use a small twig as a ‘pin’ to help fasten the crown.

Place on small child’s head and enjoy a lovely fall day!

Grown-ups can wear them too! Pictured: Jeremy and Trina on their honeymoon, St. Charles, Missouri, October 28th, 2005
