a crown from leaves


So many colourful leaves in autumn- at least in Switzerland- here in Israel less. Most trees here stay green and keep their leaves during the winter too.
Neomi had the idea (I have no idea from where) that she wanted to make a crown with all those nice leaves they collected.



We made a ring from thick paper that fit around the head and simply stapled the leaves onto the ring. The next day the leaves were already not so nice anymore so you could opt to dry and press them first. This would delay the immediate fun though :o)



We also discovered my old leave press and pressed some of the leaves.
