I have a confession to make…I know that I promised you an article sharing our Autumn art projects this week. Sadly, we have only finished our first one. We’ve gotten a little distracted as we start preparing for next week’s art focus…starting to make our Advent Jesse Tree Ornaments. So please forgive me for the simplicity of this project…
A very simple one that was a lot of fun for us…especially the gathering leaves part! lol
We started with leaf rubbings. I know its basic but we all enjoyed it, tremendously. It was fun to help each other…especially Michael (age 3).
Here are our finished simple Autumn art projects…
I know they are basic projects. But we love them! They are in a place of honor above my desk in our dining room. Next month I hope to buy some frames to put them in….frames always make things look extra special! Projects don’t have to be complicated to be special and pretty…know what I mean?
We ended up spending more time on our leaf science projects this week instead of art. But we did get our Autumn decorations up. We all have our favorites. We don’t have a lot of decorations and the ones we do have are fun, simple and very inexpensive. I love to add seasonal decor to our home as much as possible. It makes me smile…and my husband and children love it too!
Next week I will be sharing…
Our simple Autumn decorations, most of which I found at yard sales & thrift stores!
Surrendering in the kitchen as I share my newest creation…Fifteen Bean Chili (Its delicious and VERY good for you!)
The boys and I are making our own Advent Jesse Tree Ornaments that we will be using during our Family Worship the four weeks before Christmas!! I can’t wait to tell you about this very special project!
And other things as the Lord lays them on my heart!
