Simple Leaf Window Garland

Real Leaf Garlands for a Window

Did you collect some leaves over the weekend? Or before they’re all gone?

The boys did. We don’t have a lot for leaves in our yard, but enough to have a raking session, and collect a few colorful leaves for a project!


I’ve been thinking about a way to decorate our big front window for fall for quite some time. I wanted it to be something completely made by the boys. But everything I came across had sewing involved, or something more intricate that I’d be doing part of it.

So I simplified the process.

Scotch tape. Leaves. Done.



Henry pulled a good length of scotch tape across our coffee table and simply stuck the leaves the collected to it.

With a step stool close by, he hung them up as high as he could in the front window.

And that’s it!


A very simple, and pretty, window that’s decorated for the fall season.


Last year, we made a collage with collected leaves and added them to some painted leaves that we cut out of paper. I love the colors of fall!

I featured more leaf ideas on It’s Playtime [and even some last year too!].


What have you done with leaves?

Henry is 4.5 years old.

    Love this idea! My son has been really into tape recently, now that he can tear it off! Also, we have a big, glass sliding door!

    I’m writing because I run a sensory site and am looking for great ideas for Thanksgiving. And as any parent, we’re looking for terrific Thanksgiving crafts and ideas for kids with Sensory Processing Disorder and on the Autism Spectrum. Would you add a link to a craft idea or two on our blog? Here’s the link to share and get more traffic to your site…
