This Social Media Challenge Turns Nature Into Art
Get outside while leaves are still stunning—you'll need them for this social media challenge. Make your own Instagram-worthy leaf stack, and grab some friends to join!
The gardening podcast Plantrama has a fall challenge for you. In a September episode, they introduced the leaf stack challenge: The idea is to collect leaves from your yard or neighborhood to create a stunning stacked arrangement with them. Then, post a photo of your colorful creation on social media with the hashtag #leafstackchallenge.
Select leaves of different shapes and sizes so they can all be seen when layered on top of each other. You can use foliage from one type of plant to create a flush of leaves or collect a variety of shapes and colors for a more diverse leaf stack.
