White Coffee Filters
Glue Dots or Double Stick Tape
Liquid Starch (optional)
Print out leaf patterns then cut out laying them over 2 or 3 coffee filters at a time.
Spread newspaper to protect your surface.
Separate and place coffee filter leaves in shallow dish.
Dilute food coloring with water and drop with an eye dropper onto the coffee filter and watch it spread and mix. Fall colors are traditionally red, orange, and yellow with a little touch of green here and there.
Let the leaves dry on a piece of saran wrap.
You may want to brush them with liquid starch to stiffen them so they will hold up longer.
When dry tape them to your windows with glue dots or double stick tape for beautiful fall decorations.
