Leaves, leaves, leaves!

Learn how to make a Little Leaf from a T-Shirt!

Another amazing tutorial made just from old t-shirts! Try and find some green t-shirts…. this might be a challenge as I’ve found green t-shirts, especially a lovely leaf green is very hard to find! The other options you have are to use other colours, leaves don’t have to be green! Or you can dye a white or cream t-shirt the perfect green you are after…. tutorial coming soon with tips on how to do this!

There are 2 different designs of leaf I show you how to make in this video below. Try both of them out then either decide which you prefer or use both for 2 different looks!

Upcycled Leaves

Upcycled Leaves

Single Leaves or Multiple leaves?

Use these leaves to compliment a flower you’ve created by placing it underneath giving a layered effect or make lots and lots of leaves and create a full wreath effect across your whole tieback like I did in the example below! I totally got carried away making them, but ended up with an amazing, totally unique result!
