Get Your Craft On Challenge! Leaf Art and Craft

Wow I can't believe it's been 5 months since I last hosted #GetYourCraftOn.  Where's the time gone?

Last month we were in the capable hands of Red Ted Art, who was hosting Stationery Crafts - do pop over and check out the 75+ link ups, perfect for summer holiday and back to school crafting.


This time, the theme is LEAVES.  Anything goes, it can be crafting with natural leaves; dried; pressed or skeleton leaves.  Leaf rubbing; printing or painting.  Or crafts depicting leaves, made out of clay; fabric; felt; paper - whatever you like!

I'm thrilled that this challenge is being sponsored by Craft Merrily who has kindly offered a prize of this Hama bead kit to the best craft linked up (as chosen by me!).


With this kit you can make your own leaf charms to decorate keyrings, book bag zip pulls, they're even compatible with loom band jewellery!  Speaking of which, Craft Merrily stocks a wide range of loom bands including the the hugely popular scented ones.  You'll also find modelling clay, Fimo, crochet supplies, paper crafts and much much more.

Do check out her tutorials too for inspiration and the Facebook page.

So, what do you need to do to join in?  Simple, share a picture of your leaf craft - be it a child's craft or something you've done yourself.  Link up below with either a blog post; an Instagram image; a Facebook image or a Twitter picture.  Don't forget to follow the hosts on Instagram too:


Check out some of the other entries too searching the #GetYourCraftOn hashtag, and find some lovely new people to follow.

On 31st August this linky will close and I'll select my favourites in terms of creativity and originality and pick an overall winner for the Hama bead kit.

Have fun and get your craft on!

  2. Will get my thinking cap on, though I am hopeless at craft generally, but the kids enjoy it, even if I would be far too embarrassed to share our feeble offerings!!

  16. Have posted a box I made last autumn - hope you like it! I used leaves I picked up while walking my dog to decorate it, along with gold spray paint (my first time using this - fun!!!) and wood varnish that almost knocked me out with the fumes!!
