Simple Leaf Crafts

We love DIY craft projects, so we're clearly going crazy for the new book Craft-a-Day: 365 Simple Handmade Projects, by Sarah Goldschadt. These three crafts are some of our favorites from the book, but all 365 have us dying to get craft happy!

4. Take a large straight stitch across the bottom of a leaf, near the stem, poking the needle down through one side and up through the other. Leave a length of thread and then take another straight stitch through the next leaf.
