Kitchen Towel Blotting Fall Leaf Art- How to:

Place your leaf cut-out underneath a paper towel on a flat surface. Draw the outline of the leaf onto the paper towel using a black sharpie marker, and be sure to include the lines inside of the leaf as well.
Use your pipette to drip small amounts of paint on top of the paper towel, again the more variety of colors you use the better the end result. With the paint bleeding through the paper towel it gives a neat fall coloring and is a nice, clean fall craft project to complete with your classroom students!
