Simple Projects Week: Autumn Tree!
Wouldn't you know it, last project that I share this week didn't turn out as I'd planned. :o(
I had this great golden tree in mind-it was so gorgeous in my head! But time ran out (ok, I procrastinated) and so did my gold spray paint. Oh well! It still turned out kinda pretty, and we have imaginations... :o)
So let's imagine that this tree has about twice as many gold leaves and gold branches as well. Isn't that lovely?
If you can imagine it and you'd like to make your own, here's how!
First cut one or two branches off a tree(dead or alive), trim them up a little if needed and spray paint them gold(or silver, white, black...hot pink?). One can should be enough. (Mine was only half full.)
Grab a package of silk leaves from the dollar store and spray paint them all. Because the leaves are fabric they'll dry in less than a minute, so this won't take long!
Attach them with a glue gun, and you're done!
You can stick them in a vase with moss or rocks, etc. in the bottom.
I loved doing this! It was so quick and fun that working on it literally made me giddy. I love projects like that.
If you're not a "huge tree in the middle of my table" person, a row of little trees in vases would be cute, too! You could also totally leave the leaves their au naturel, multi-colored selves for a more traditionally autumn look.
That wraps up my simple projects for this week! Tomorrow I'll be sharing a roundup of my favorite simple projects from other places!
I'll see you then. :o) Have a great Saturday!
