Craft Project - All Natural Fall Leaf Hat
by Wen Zientek-Sico

All Natural Fall Leaf HatAn old garden hat and some leaves gathered from the trees in the front yard makes for a "free" craft that looks festive and like you spent big bucks at a craft store. We used an old straw hat, but any wide brimmed hat would work well for this project. These leaves came right out of our front and back yards and we dried them using the simple microwave method. Check out our tutorial section if you do not know how to dry leaves. You can purchase dried leaves if you live in an area where the leaves do not turn at your local craft or discount store, or online.

All Natural Fall Leaf Hat

40-50 dried autumn leaves in different sizes

18 inch straw hat

Glue gun or tacky glue



Arrange the leaves on the hat, making sure to alternate colors and overlap the leaves. Make sure some of the leaves drape over the edges of the hat to break up the space. Once you have the leaves arranged the way you like them, remove them one by one and glue them onto the hat until they are all affixed firmly. Let the glue dry thoroughly before hanging.
