Oak Leaves - So Many - Craft Idea One


As I ponder this craft, I hear a crackling sound, and a leaf drops past my head. I mean, it literally made a snapping sound before it let loose and fell off the tree.

As I stand here, I hear bugs chirping, birds singing, and the sound of my neighbors grain dryer running. The day is lightly moist with a light fog.

Use a utility knife and cut a design on the leaf.

Maybe the trick is finding just the perfect leaf. We would do an activity similar to this when I was still teaching. Sending Angels your way this morning. ps

The first google search that came up for me was "Fallen Leaves" by Billy Talent, which seems to be heavy metal. [but perhaps you are referring to Eva Cassidy's song...] I'm not familiar with either one...

It is called "Autumn Leaves," and has been sung by many people through the years.

This is a good idea. The leaves are falling quicker and sooner with you than in our part of the UK.
