This fall framed art is so easy to do! I love the way pressed leaves look, but I don’t have the patience to wait while they press flat and dry. I made an easy fall framed art project that uses pressed leaves that takes just 5 minutes or less to create.

Easy Pressed Leaves Fall Framed Art in 5 Minutes
This fall framed art is very easy to make and very inexpensive. You may not need to buy any supplies at all depending on what you already have. I used the fall framed art with a few other fall themed items I already had but you could easily hang yours on the wall or display it alone.
- 2 picture frames with glass
- 2 leaves of alternating sizes and colors
- tape or glue
I had to buy two new picture frames since I didn’t have any that weren’t already being used. What I would recommend that you do is buy one “nice” picture frame that you will use to display your fall framed art and one “junk” picture frame that you can take apart for the extra piece of glass. Or if you are one of those handy people, you can cut a piece of glass that will fit.
- Take apart the two picture frames.
- You will need the frame and glass from one frame and just the glass for the other.
- Set one frame face down with the glass in it.
- Place two leaves on the glass in whatever way looks nicest.
- Place the second piece of glass on the back and tape or glue together.
This takes a little bit of practice. If you want the back to be clear so it looks like the leaves float, you need to tape or glue it together so it doesn’t show through to the other side but still holds the leaves flat. Use super glue if you want it permanent or want to hang it on the wall. If you only want to lean it against something, you can use tape. If you don’t care if the leaves appear to float or not, you can use a piece of white paper on the back and then the back of the picture frame to hold it together.
