Autumn Foam Leaf Tree Picture

ER and I did this very simple craft project, using a set of glittery foam leaves I picked up at the Dollar Store. I hand cut out a tree shape from scrapbook paper. She glued it onto a blue sheet of scrapbok paper and then added all the leaves. It's supposed to look like the leaves are falling. An AUTUMN rub-on and a family picture from last Thanksgiving completed it.

I put it in a frame from Ikea. I accidentally broke the glass for it; thought this was a good way to still be able to use it. A lot of our crafts have 3D components like pom poms or google eyes so the glass would have to be removed to frame them anyway.

It adds a nice touch of color to our wall. I told ER we were scrapbooking together, which she loved! The photo is in a plastic sleeve, and I thought it might be nice to switch up the picture next year and put it up again. I am thinking about making a new masterpiece every month, so it'll be an ever changing art display. I've got to get ER hooked on scrapbooking early, after all☺

Very cute and I love that ER helped.

What a great idea! A changing art display is very cool too! I had a friend that had an easel at her front door and changed out artwork often. I always though that was really neat!

Came out great! I love the idea of the plastic sleeve.

That's a lovely image, and it's so fun that you got to involve your daughter in something you love (scrapbooking). I find such joy in sewing with my son on my knee.

I really like this (I've been meaning to comment, sorry it has taken me forever to get back here), you always have such great ideas. This one looks so nice and I like the idea of changing it out once in a while. Gosh, your house must just look so cool with all your craftiness and great framed art!!
