PALM LEAF DIY

MATERIALS

Green construction paper

Scissors

Bone folder ( really anything hard like a pen, credit card, spoon etc. will do )

Optional watercolors, pastels, or blendable medium.

 

INSTRUCTION

Fold construction paper in half longways

Cut out and be long gated leaf/teardrop shape

Here is a template of the leaf in case you need LEAF TEMPLATE

 

Optional step, using your chosen art medium create a gradient (on the diagonal ) with darker green in the center to a lighter yellow-green out to the edges

Accordion fold on the diagonal from bottom to top. ( if you would like to make it a bit more realistic you can make the accordion folds gradually smaller/tighter towards the top)

While still folded in half cut a triangle shape off of every other accordion point to suggest individual fronds. 

Open your palm leaf and enjoy!
