Painting on natural found materials like leaves, sticks and bark are one of our favourite activities. It's also super easy and cheap!
This time we decided to make our painted autumn leaves into a pretty mobile.
MATERIALS: Leaves, stick, yarn, paint sticks and tape.
TUTORIAL: Start decorating your leaves, we used paint sticks, they are easy to use and give great vibrant colours.
We played about with our leaves making pretty flower collages first before making our mobile. If you stuck them down they would make pretty artwork just on their own.
To make your mobile get a stick and some yarn.
We wrapped yarn around our stick to decorate it.
Tie strings to your stick and tape the leaves on, washi tape or sellotape works well.
