These wax paper leaf prints combine two things that we love, nature and printmaking.

Leaves are fantastic for printmaking. There are so many shapes and sizes to choose from and the veins in the leaves create such lovely lines. We are lucky enough to live in a wooded area, surrounded by such beautiful nature.  We have unlimited art inspiration and free craft materials at our fingertips. My daughter and I walked around our yard and gathered different sizes and shapes of leaves for our printmaking project. We looked for interesting shapes with more prominent veins, as they make the best prints. Once we gathered all of our supplies, we were ready to make our wax paper leaf prints. Here’s how.

This adorable leaf bunny nature craft is perfect for the springtime and Easter.

We have a rhododendron bush in our front yard. I love the leaves from that bush and pick them off often to use for arts and crafts projects with my daughter. The last time we worked with them, my brother-in-law stopped over and suggested that we could make Easter bunnies with them because the leaves looked like bunny ears. Brilliant! Now why didn’t I think of that? Either way, I used his great idea and made this adorable leaf bunny.
