These printable fall leaves are the perfect little art piece to autumn decorations. They are super simple, but their saturated watercolor designs make their colors almost irresistible. There are two formats and three sizes available (even the larger 11x14" option). And each size has either the labeled version of the leaves or the blank one, with just the leaves. Download your preferred size and format below.

I compiled these printable fall leaves from my big set of 30 Watercolor Fall Leaf Printables. These are the particular leaves that seem to be the most popular, not all be maple leaves, have a variety of different colors between them, and, well, with different names from one another, (so it wasn't all lobed, lobed, lobed). I wanted them to really pop off the page, like a traditional leaf study that you'd find in a botanist's office space or their greenhouse. Even if they lean a bit towards looking like pressed leaves, that would be perfection to me. Plus, who doesn't love a classic free fall leaf study?

Sometimes less of the cutesy and more, well, straightforward and *almost* lifelike printables are the way to go, especially right now as we try to bring a bit of nature-inspired fall decoration in the mix of our homes. These printable fall leaves are just that. They're fairly no-frills and no-nonsense, but their colors just bring them to life on the page. Their different textures and shapes really play off of one another, but yet, also come together to form one, cohesive print that is perfectly fall. I think a leaf study is appropriate any time of the year (like, the ones in my free botanical printables), but fall is definitely my favorite due to the colors of the foliage. And the labeled names are authentic on each of these.

And with the oversized 11x14" print, this is another fall design that would work well on a mantel or a part of a simple fall vignette.

As I mentioned, today's printables have five smaller versions of some of the leaves from my 30 Fall Leaf Prints (three are pictured above). This set is perfect for a gallery wall for the fall or similar. 

Labeled and Non-Labeled Fall Leaves

Plain Leaf Printable
The above pictured printable is the one without the labels.

And the print pictured below is the one that has each of the leaves labeled. I really prefer the below version. There is something about the lowercase letters and scripty writing mixing in with the leaves that really makes me happy. But, I definitely wanted to give you the option of both styles of printable.

Labeled Leaves

Printing and Using Your Fall Leaves

  • As I mentioned, these printable fall leaves come in the following sizes and formats:
    • 11x14" JPEG or PDF
    • 8x10" JPEG or PDF
    • 5x7" JPEG or two-to-a-page PDF
  • The 11x14" can easily be printed at a place like Walgreens (or similar). Simply go to their site and select photo options. The site will prompt you through the process. Often, their oversized prints are half off. You can pick up at your local store.
  • The other JPEG options can also be printed in that same manner as mentioned above. Be sure to select the matte finish, where available.
  • Both the 8x10" and 5x7" PDF formats can easily be printed on your home printer. Be sure to print only on white-letter-sized cardstock for the best results. 
  • The 5x7" PDF has two of the designs per page. You can frame one for yourself and give the other to fellow fall-loving friend.
  • Due to the size of the text on the leaf printables, I did not create 4x6" printables for these designs, like I normally do. When I was working on mock-ups of these, they were a bit difficult to read...so they hit the cutting room floor (womp, womp). 

Framing the Oversized Printables

I found a couple of awesome frames for the 11x14" sized printables over on Amazon (this same frame also works for my oversized Fall Mums Printables, too). I have information on both of them below:

I always get a kick out of the name of the finish of the above pictured frame. It's called Rotten Brown (and Rotten White is available, too)! But, all kidding aside, it's a nice, sturdy frame with a simple, rustic finish to it that's perfect for fall. What I like about this frame is that it's 11x14", however, it also comes with a mat so you can use it for 8x10" sized prints, too. 

Classroom Leaf Templates

Using in Classroom Settings

While I've created these prints to be a part of fall home (and workplace) decor, they'd also be fantastic used in a classroom or homeschool setting. Here are some different ideas to implement:
  • Change these to black and white or greyscale on your printer's settings onto cardstock. Print, cut, and use the leaf outline as simple leaf patterns to trace. They make a great stencil.
  • If you do the above option, cut them out carefully, and then use the "negative" outlines left in your cardstock as a leaf template (which is similar to the first scenario, but it gives you some different textile approaches). One of my kids was in Occupational Therapy for years and we used things like this to work on fine motor skills.
  • Print and cut the leaves out to use in a leaf craft (or any type of fall crafts). Here in Texas, we don't get the beautiful and colorful quintessential fall leaves, so if I were doing a craft, I'd look for something like this to use instead.
  • Print out one of the labeled leaf studies, and then the non-labeled. Make classroom copies of the non-labeled. And have kids refer to the labeled ones as they label their own leaves on their page. They can even take it further by cutting their leaves out and gluing to construction paper. Then they can use pencils, markers, or crayons to creatively label their own papers.
  • These leaves make lovely pieces for a fall bulletin board.
  • Print on thinner paper, cut, and use as simple leaf suncatchers in a classroom window.
  • Print on sticker paper for your own fall stickers.
  • If you're wanting a seasonal coloring sheet, find several in my Free Printable Coloring Pages for Fall post. Two of the designs are free fall leaf coloring pages to stick with this theme.
