Painted Sycamore Tree Leaves for Decorating

Janet Scott


During our fall season our sycamore tree sheds some giant leaves.
This year I played with them and boy do they look pretty.
Put them on your frig, decorate on your Thanksgiving table centerpiece or whatever you want to do with them. A great kids project! Use any leaf.
