Spread leaves, twigs, branches face down on craft paper. Secure with small rocks.
Lightly spray edges of leaves with brown spray paint.
Finish by accenting the entire paper with the gold & silver spray paint.
Let completely dry before wrapping.
Green, red, bronze paint can also be used. A neat idea for kid's giftwrap - use cutout shapes from stencils, like snowmen, Santa's, presents, etc.
We tried pretzels last year with red & white paint - the kid's loved it!
