Simple Leaf Art | Day 2: Made by Hand
Wondering what to give your nature loving friend for Christmas this year? A quick and easy alternative to painting a canvas is to create a simple art canvases with literal pieces of nature’s art. For this project, I had some fern cuttings from trimming my hanging baskets and woodland gardens this fall, but any flat leaf will work! Evergreens like rhododendrons can look really beautiful on canvases. Take a look around outside and see what might work and then break out the canvas and hairspray!
