Easy Leaf Art

If you've been reading this blog for a while you know how hard I try to come up with art ideas that families will not only want to display, but will also keep for years to come.  I found the perfect one for this fall with the help of Oriental Trading!

This project could not be easier, your students will love it, and so will their families. I got the white ceramic ornaments from Oriental Trading's Halloween collection.  The "dipped" look is pretty popular, so that's what I was going for. I put a little acrylic paint in the bottom of a plastic cup and added a little water so that there was enough to dip the leaf in.

I let them dry on a sheet of waked paper and voila! Easy and very trendy.

I may even have to make a few for myself!

  1. Yeah I agree that this leaf art is jaw dropping. I am sure parents would keep this art for lifetime in their home. I would also like to do something like this in our classroom. But lately we are performing Missing Vowel activities in the class. I have found really cool printables fromhttp://www.kidsfront.com/english/1.missingvowels.html.
