Painted Leaf Art

Hi Friends,

Don’t you love fall? It has always been my favorite season and my favorite season time of year to decorate. Today I will show you an amazingly easy  and practically free fall decor art project.

On the way to the bus stop with my boys this morning I spotted some magnolia leaves on the ground. We collected the leaves for this project.

With copper spray paint, I coated all the leaves.

With acrylic black and white paint I embellished each leaf. This is the really fun part.

Using a tiny dab of hot-glue I attached fishing line to each leaf.

I attached the other end of the fishing line to a stick that I found in the backyard. I attached the twig to the wall using tiny nails.
