Cut square paper in half diagonally, I’m using a 12x12” scrapbook paper. Thinner paper is easier
1
Cut one triangle in half. Use a cutting mat to keep your cut straight.
2
You could make even smaller ones by cutting one of these in half
3
This is what each size triangle makes
Accordion fold each triangle, start at the longest side. Use a ruler to start the first fold at .5”
4
Fold the strip in half so long sides come together (you could stop here & use this as bat wings!)
5
Use Mod Podge on both long sides and press together for a minute
6
Hot glue 1-3 leaves to a skewer, chop stick, or wire. This is a skewer I painted black & cut to size
7
Use different sized skewers depending on how you’ll use these. Longer for flower arrangements
Add Halloween embellishment w/ hot glue if desired
8
Your Halloween pick is ready to add to wreaths, flower arrangements, & other decor!
