Pinning It Down--2

Put this one on your Autumn board. It's too cute!

We did this around Thanksgiving. All of the kids got a tree template and used their fingertips (or a paintbrush for certain mess-averse older kids) to add fall-colored acrylic paint for leaves.

So simple (although I had to do Anwen's hands without making a mess on either of us, which was not so simple), and just happy. I still have it up.

The original pin added the word "thankful" to the template but I just decided to use it as it was.

I'm working on a project I started a few years ago and allowed myself to think was too time-consuming to spend much time on. (Make sense?) Then I saw someone's idea of the same thing on Pinterest and was goaded into taking it up again. It's still time-consuming. I'll show you when I'm done. Here are a few other pins I plan on doing soon.

How about you?

Go see Pam for other pinned-down projects!

We did something similar to this during the fall, too- but used Qtips instead of fingers. These came out lovely! :)

I am so glad to know that other people have "mess-adverse" kids like mine. Very pretty!

Thank you! I think I saw Q-tip trees pinned recently, which made me remember this. We did an apple unit study a few years ago, and copied still life paintings of an apple in pointilism using Q-tips. I loved the way they turned out.

So pretty, Nicole. And anything with those precious fingerprints on it becomes so meaningful. Thank you for sharing!

Love these -- really cute. So cool to see them all lined up like that too.

Those trees are so cute. I love being able to plan ahead with Pinterest. I used to see projects I liked, thought I'd remember them when the time came, but would always forget. Now I just file them away on my boards.

So cute! I love the way you have them displayed too.

Those turned out really well. They look adorable all hanging on your window.
