10 Craft Ideas To Do With Leaf Coloring Pages

Here are 10 affordable, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Scrapbooking

My leaf coloring pages are ideal for scrapbooking, whether you’re using the entire page as a backdrop or cutting out individual leaves and gluing them on.

They’re perfect for adorning scrapbooking pages celebrating that big football game win, the homecoming dance, a fall wedding, or even a fall baby.

9. Greeting Cards

If you are celebrating something in the autumn and you want to give a greeting card that is on-season, consider using my leaf coloring pages.

You can either print it out on the half-page and fold it in half, or you can print it out at a quarter-page and fold it end to end and then again so that the illustration is on the cover.

Then you can write a greeting on the front and a sweet message on the inside.

8. Keychains

For a fun craft that you can do with your little ones, you will need shrink sheets and keychain hardware to complete this.

Print off the illustrations that have the leaves of your choice onto the shrink sheets and color them in with markers.

Then you’re going to cut out the leaves carefully and punch a hole wherever you want the keychain hardware to attach.

Bake according to your shrink sheets’ instructions and let cool completely.

Then attach the keychain hardware, and you have yourself a nifty craft that is also very giftable!

7. Magnets

For this craft, you will also need shrink sheets.

Follow the same instructions as above (minus the hole punching) until you get to the post-cooling stage.

Then you’re going to whip out your handy hot glue gun (or superglue if you don’t have a hot glue gun).

Glue a small magnet to the back of the leaves and wait for it to dry completely.

6. Coasters

My coloring pages would make beautiful autumn-time coasters that you’ll be chomping at the bit to get out come September every year.

You’ll need tiles, either wood or ceramic, plus adhesive spray or Mod Podge (Mod Podge you can get at most dollar stores!).

You can choose to either leave the page intact or cut out individual leaves; either way, color them in first.

You’ll then either cut out squares, just slightly larger than the tiles themselves, or the individual leaves.

Using spray adhesive or Mod Podge, attach the leaf illustration to the tile with a few coats and wait to use until the tile is dried completely.

5. Party Decorations

For your next fall-themed party, whether it’s a potluck supper or a classroom hurrah, my leaf coloring pages make cute, homemade decorations.

In fact, if you’re decorating for a classroom party, you can have the kids each color in an illustration, putting their own personal touch on it, and cut out the leaves.

(Although you’ll want to make sure they sign the backs, so they know whose are whose when it’s time for the decorations to come down!)

4. Fall Wall Décor 

To add an autumnal touch to your walls come September or October, you can color in my leaf pages, frame them and hang them up.

I would recommend some really nice markers or colored pencils; frames you can find on the cheap at the dollar store.

But if you have the funds to spend on nicer frames, go for it!

3. Fall Leaf Wreaths

For a fun craft that you can do with your kids, color in multiple leaves on my coloring pages and cut them out.

You’re going to need a piece of construction paper (the color is up to you, although I recommend red, orange, yellow, or black).

Fold the paper over the short end to the short end, and cut out a half-circle; then, a few inches below, cut out another half-circle. When you open up the paper, you should have a full circle.

You’re going to paste the colored-in leaves into the circle, arranging them artfully around the circle to form a wreath.

2. Leaf Window Decorations

For pretty sun catcher-style leaf decorations that will look gorgeous in your window, you’ll need some contact paper and tissue paper.

You’re going to print off my leaf coloring pages and put the contact paper over them, tracing the outlines of the leaves; you’ll need to do this with two pieces of contact paper.

Then you’re going to glue little squares of tissue paper (you can cut them up before you begin) to the first page of contact paper.

Then you’ll place the second piece of contact paper over the first, lining up the leaf outlines, and glue it down.

After that, all you have to do is cut out the leaves and tape them up on your windows.

1. Hanging Leaves

For this craft, you’ll need a stick about a foot and a half long (yes, a real stick from outside!), plus some twine or string.

You’re going to take my leaf pages and pick out enough so that there are five to six leaves in total. Then you’ll color them in and cut them out.

Make pin-pricks in the “stems” of the leaves and loop string through, tying it off. You’ll want different lengths of string, which you are then going to tie to the branch.

Finally, you’ll take one final piece of string and tie it to either end of the stick; that’ll be what you hang the stick up on the wall with.
