Our backyard is littered in colorful mulberry leaves—a reminder that despite the constant temperature fluctuation, Fall is here in North Carolina. Making your own Kirigami leafs are a great way to bring Fall inside. They look great placed in windows, under candles, or strung together in a garland.

These leafs pictured here were created by Jessica at Zakka Life. She followed these simple steps to create some great decor with few materials.

Tools
6" x 6" origami paper - you can use any size paper, you'll just have to adjust the templates accordingly
Scissors
Pencil
Printable template show below is available in higher resolution over at Zakka Life

Instructions:

  1. Begin with a square piece of paper and fold into quarters diagonally.
  2. Using either the template or your imagination, draw the quarter image of your fall subject: leafs, beets, mushrooms, anything will work! Ensure you have contact points on all edges of the paper for the best effect.
  3. Cut out your object, and unfold to see how you've done!
