Grandma Crafts – Fall Collage

Found via Pinterest from Simply Kierste: fall leaf collages. I drew a bare tree outline and trimmed it out of dark brown card stock. Then punched leaves out of five coordinating scrapbook papers. (Punches: Martha Stewart Crafts purchased with coupons from Michaels.) I painted two flat canvases off-white and glued the tree down with Mod Podge. Then we used paintbrushes and Mod Podge and went to work gluing leaves. 

I let the leaves dry for a day then went over the whole thing with one coat to give it a sheen and make everything lay flat. This was a good Grandma project ... easy to do with very pretty results!
