Today’s “Leaf Friends” card idea is SUPER easy to whip up on the fly and is perfect for fall! Each card can have it’s own personality and I think that’s my favorite part of this Dollar Tree find DIY idea! #gluedtomycrafts
Ready to recreate this handmade idea? Gather up a few simple materials from Dollar Tree and let your child’s creative side shine BRIGHT this autumn season. With just ONE pack of colorful felt leaves, from one of my favorite stores, you can make SEVERAL different “leaf people” cards within minutes! All of which can be customized without breaking the piggy bank!
For this particular handmade card idea, all you need is some school glue, wiggle eyes, yarn, the felt leaves, scissors, Sharpie markers and of course – colored cardstock. That’s it!
Just look at these cute creations! There’s no right or wrong way to do this craft. Just have fun by creating your card out of cardstock, adhering your leaf to the center of it and then decorating it to bring it to life!
Then go for glam and add glitter, rhinestones, stickers – whatever you may have on hand.
Or not! Go for simple like I did! A little yarn for the mouth and some “stick” embellishments for the hands/feet made by a thin-tip Sharpie. It doesn’t even need to be elaborate. Just go with the flow and let those crafty juices out!
