My mom recently came for a visit and I tried to occupy here time with a bit of 'craftyness'.
We opted for painting some fallen autumn leaves as well as mini pumpkins, apples, and pomegranites and I thought I'd share it with you.
Here's what we used:
-mini pumpkins, pomegranites, apples (whatever fruit or squash/gourd you'd like)- I pressed and dried the leaves first so they wouldn't curl
-acrylic paints- I used coppers and golds as well as browns, oranges and yellows
|didn't these turn out gorgeous?|
|there's something to be said for a gold painted gingko leaf|
|I strung mom's painted leaves with fishing line so it looks like they are floating|
