Here is my leaf garland!
Last week, I posted pics of the real dried leaves I painted. I really had fun painting those and wanted to do more, but I had only dried 6 leaves and I didn't want to wait a bunch more days for more dried leaves.
So! I painted my own leaves on paper. I used regular copy paper which is not that sturdy. After the paint dried, I decided to glue the leaves to some old sheet music for more stability. I cut them out and then strung them together.
I love how it turned out, but mostly I had so much fun painting each leaf! I forgot how much I like using paints.
