If you've tried this... you know how easy it is. I saw this No Mess Fall leaf painting project over at Moments of Mommyhood and decided to try it with baggies instead of wax paper.
It was fabulous and simple... and not messy at all!
Materials Needed: leaf template, scissors, paint (we used yellow and red), and large ziploc baggies (size depends on the size of your leaves)
1. Cut out your leaf
2. Stick it in a baggie.
3. Add some paint... and a drop of water or two if you want to make the paint move around better.
4. Seal the bag.
5. Use both hands to squish the paint and move it around (I only had one hand free for this picture... ). Try and cover the whole leaf!
6. Pull the leaf out and let it dry.
Wouldn't it be fun to make a bunch of these baggie painted leaves using different types of leaf templates and then create a Fall leaf garland like this one found on Ohdeedoh?
