I grew up in northern Wisconsin, and while I don’t really miss the months of snow and ice, I do miss the leaves. In the summer they’re everywhere – you can barely tell there are buildings for all the beautiful trees!
And in the fall…oh my word. There’s just something about the cool, crisp air, the beautiful red and gold leaves falling all around you…it’s heaven. Or darn near.
As a child, I remember doing all kinds of nature projects and crafts with my mom and my friends. It was fun to celebrate the beauty of the leaves and get creative with what we found in nature!

Where I live now, we still get some leaves turning each year, but it’s just not the same. To bring back a little taste of the autumn I remember from childhood, I put together a list of my favorite autumn leaf DIY projects.
I’ve also listed the supplies you’ll need for several so you can easily find the ones your kids would love!
These would be great projects to add to your nature studies or craft time. They can also be a fun way to start new traditions with your family!
