Fauna and I spent the afternoon making leaf stars from the giant Sycamore leaves that are scattered all over our backyard. They were so easy to do and have all kinds of décor possibilities.
:: When the leaf is still fresh and just fallen from the tree, trace a star cutter and cut. I used a fine tip Sharpie marker, which gently tore the leaf around the cutter so I simply just had to cut on the perforated lines. You can use them fresh for crafts right away but giving them a little 24 hour press in a book or flower press will make them more pliable for use.
:: String the stars with acorn caps to make a window garland.
:: Add glitter to add some sparkle.
:: Use Mod Podge to make a star leaf lantern.
:: Use tape and sprinkle stars across your window.
