My daughter and I crafted together the other day. It was a great deal of fun, though I am not sure if the Lil Punkin (granddaughter #5) was enjoying it as much as we did. That is what high chairs and DVD’s are really for you know. (Did I say that out loud?)
This craft was not our original idea. It came from something I pinned on Pinterest by Two Girls Being Crafty called Scrapbook Paper Tree. Ok….their Paper Tree is much fuller but….mine is still pretty cute.
Here is what we did:
24 gage florist wire
Various scrapbook paper or card stock
Branches from the yard
First, make some leaf patterns….or not. My daughter did hers free hand. By the end, I was just cutting mine out too. Cut out two different sizes….or more….out of various fall scrapbook paper.
Then, cut some short wires, maybe 4 inches long. Glue two of the leafs back to back over the wire.
Pick out which branches you want to use and what size vase you need. We tried a few options.
Then start wrapping the wires with leaves around the branches.
That’s it. Simple as pie! I ended up using an antique brass pitcher for my vase.
