If you want to create fun letters that you can use to create place card designs, signs and even birthday cards this DIY typography alphabet is a great way to do so. All you need is a couple leaves and a pair of scissors.

To make this beautifully botanical font, begin by collecting a wide variety of green leaves from several different plants. Then sketch out the letters you need onto the leaves and use a pair of scissors or an X-Acto knife to cut the letters out. Then you can use the leafy letters to spell out names or well wishes on place mats or birthday cards. Simply glue the woodland letters onto sheets of card in whatever arrangement you wish. This tutorial would be fun to play around with in the fall when the leaves change colors.
