Tie Dyed Leaves

These Tie Dyed Leaves are a great fall kids craft! These will look great as a fall decoration around the house, or sprinkled on top of a table for Thanksgiving or any fall celebration!

Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Here's what you'll need...

•Coffee Filters
•Construction paper (any color)
•Food coloring
•Eye dropper or straw
•Small containers (egg carton or muffin tin will work too)

Here's how to make them...

1. From your construction paper, make templates of leaves to trace onto the coffee filters. You can either draw your leaves free hand, or find some leaves outside and use them as your template.

2. Trace and cut out as many leaves as you would like from your coffee filters.

3. In small containers mix 1 Tbsp of water with 3 drops of food coloring (1 Tbsp of water will be enough for about 7-8 leaves, double the mix if needed)The more food coloring you add to your water, the more vibrant the colors will be. Mix one color in each container, mix all the colors together to make brown.

4. Using the eye dropper or straw, begin dropping one color onto your leaves. Only drop one color at a time and use a new dropper for each color (if you only have one, just rinse it out after each use). You have created some beautiful fall leaves!
