PALM LEAF DIY
Green construction paper
Bone folder ( really anything hard like a pen, credit card, spoon etc. will do )
Optional watercolors, pastels, or blendable medium.
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!
