Fall Decor - Crochet Maple & Oak Leaves

Updated: Apr 25, 2018

I’ve adapted these patterns to make them as simple and as quick as possible. Each leaf should be approx. 4inches long and should only take you 10mins a piece. They came out super cute so now I need to think of the best way to display them. If you have any ideas, please let me know!
