We’ve been combining two activities from my book The Garden Classroom this week to create some beautiful autumn art. Taking the idea of leaf art and adding it to my Sticky Picture frames, here’s what we made.
To make the frame: bind the twigs together with thread or yarn. Then use drawing pins/pushpins to help the contact paper stay in place.
Autumn gives us so many natural materials to use in art, and the Sticky Picture frames can display your pictures in the window, letting your designs catch the sunlight.
