We finally hung the watercolor leaves the girls painted a while ago. I carefully cut them out and had the girls paint on the other side. Then we hung a brown string across our door leading from the kitchen to the livingroom.
I have the doors closed just for the photo. Normally they are opened. This is the spot where Sir Husband will run into them, at least 256 times a day. Last night Sir Son announced he ran into the too. So we have a double-header going on here. 😀
This is the place we usually hang our holiday craftiness. Christmas might be gingerbread men, Valentines day might be dancing heart people, and so on. You get the picture. This time is is watercolor leaves and pumpkins.
I got the pumpkin idea from Art Projects for Kids. The girls cut out 6″ strips of orange paper for our pumpkins. WE couldn’t push the brads through the paper to attach all the orange strips, so I punched a small hole in each end. It worked great. Very thin strips of green were cut and then twisted around a knitting needle to get them to curl. Green leaves were added after the curly strip.
The girls had a lot of fun with this project.
