DIY Leaf Catcher

Fall is my favorite time of year. There are so many won­der­ful things about this sea­son, like crunch­ing leaves, caramel apples, and fam­ily times! Make this leaf catcher and cap­ture all of your fall favorites!

What You Need

  • Print­able leaves tem­plate (down­load here)
  • Large embroi­dery hoop (I used a 14-inch hoop)
  • Yarn
  • Card Stock
DIY Leaf Catcher

Step 1
Start­ing with a short tail and hold­ing it as you work, wrap the yarn around the hoop, criss­cross­ing it as you go.

Step 2
Wrap the hoop as much as you want, then cut off the yarn and join it to your start­ing tail with a knot. Trim the ends, and you’ll hardly see the knot.

Step 3
Add a sec­ond layer of wrapped yarn in another color or weight if you like, repeat­ing the wrap­ping from steps 1 and 2.

Step 4
Print the leaves onto card stock and then cut them out. Place your cut out leaves close to your leaf catcher, and keep a pen nearby too.

Note: The PDF con­tains col­ors as well as black and white. You can print the black-and-white ver­sion on col­ored paper, or leave them white for a more mod­ern leaf catcher.

Step 5
Write down your favorite things about fall, or some spe­cial mem­o­ries that you make this year. Tuck them into your leaf catcher so your whole fam­ily can cel­e­brate the sea­son! You can even use this as a way to start doc­u­ment­ing the things you’re thank­ful for, then read them out when Thanks­giv­ing comes.
