Fall Frames

Mount pressed autumn leaves on bright backgrounds for an easy-to-make fall frame.


  • 4 10" x 10" square frames with glass (or Plexiglas) and mats  
  • Patterned paper
  • Solid paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Assortment of colorful leaves  
  • Glue dots


1. Remove mat from frame. Place mat on paper and trace around exterior (not the window). Cut out. Repeat until you’ve cut two pieces of patterned paper and two pieces of solid paper.

2. Place mat over paper and position a leaf or two as desired in window. Use a glue dot to hold in place if needed. Reassemble frame. Repeat for each frame.
