Step 1

Step 2


  1. Paint the leaves using the paintbrush and Resene testpots. If you have a roller, use it to press the leaves onto the card. Otherwise use your palms. Leave to dry.
  2. Punch holes on either side at the top of the card, and string onto the branch to make a hanging rod. String the top into a triangle formation, and hang. If you find red leaves on your walks, add them to your new print.

Top tip: Before you print your leaves, choose a Resene basecoat colour to complement or contrast your room colour palette. Then print your leaves ensuring your colours have enough contrast to your basecoat colour.
