If you read this post, you know I am having a bit of a problem coming to grips with autumn. It happens every year. I’m all “sunshine and bright colors!!” while the rest of America is all “burlap and pumpkin spice everything!!” This year, I’m bound and determined to marry my love for summer with the reality of fall. This season, all of my projects will be colorful and bold. I’ve never been one to follow rules!

Today, I’m trading in maple leaves for monstera. I used this same leaf pattern for this summer picnic blanket and today they’re getting an autumn-worthy makeover. Rather than pull out your craft knife or scissors, you can create these perfect monstera leaves by heading over to Cricut Design Space where I’ve mapped the entire project out for you. 

Autumn leaves are coming but I'm still holding on to summer. Combine both seasons with these DIY Paper Monstera Leaves made with a Cricut Explore

Use the Xyron Creative Station to turn the paper monstera leaves into stickers. If you don’t have a Xyron Creative Station, no worries- just use craft glue!

Each leaf has two layers. Adhere to top sticker layer onto the background layer. You’ll have two finished leaves for each monstera leaf.

Use hot glue to sandwich the floral wire between two piece of paper. This will become the stem of your monstera leaf.

Run the floral wire up the entire leaf and then glue the second leaf on top to hide it.

  1. Love these big leaves.
    I’m with you, I leave summer kicking and screaming—well at least whining! Fall is pretty but it only lasts about 2 weeks around here and then its winter. Hate, hate winter. Can’t put the capri’s away til I’m seeing snow on the ground. Then moan about how long winter is going to be.
    I love color too and can’t wait each spring to get the colorful clothes out. I can’t believe people that wander around all summer wearing black and brown. (just my opinion of course).

    Love to see you on tv–wasn’t that you this past Tues on HSN? Love your cheerfulness and laughter

  2. Hello!!! I really think this would be fun to make. When I click on the link I click open design space and the Monstera leaves do not come up in design space. Is there another way to get the file? Thank you!!!
