Leaf Regalia

Leaf Regalia

Simple yet magnificent! Next time you head into the woods, bring along a 2″ x 20″ long strip of card stock (or, we stapled together 2 folded letter-sized colored paper strips to get the right length and stiffness), double-sided tape and a stapler. Collect colorful leaves and other treasures from the forest floor and then arrange them on the paper strip. Staple the bigger pieces in place and cover the staples with smaller embellishments using the tape. Wrap the strip around the appropriate head to find the right fit. Staple the two ends together and you’re ready for the coronation!

The perfect workshop for this project is the picnic bench perched atop Goat Hill in Lambertville overlooking the Delaware River.
