Create the wreath's round frame out of a paper plate or cardboard.
Make 20 or more paper leaves following any of the options below. Make the leaves uniform in shape and size or go for more variety.
a.) Printable leaves - print out any of these leaf sets on red, yellow, orange, and brown A4 or Letter size paper. Cut out each leaf.
b.) Fold and cut leaves - this is a great way for kids to learn about symmetry and practice scissors skills. Fold paper in half and cut out half-a-leaf shape along the folded edge. Unfold the paper to reveal the leaf.
Make several leaves all at once by layering 2 or more pieces of paper before folding and cutting them together.
c.) Use real leaves - go for a walk and collect fall leaves with various shapes. Trace around each leaf onto colored paper to make leaf outlines. Cut out each leaf outline.
