I am all about quick and easy when it comes to crafts.
If it takes too long, gets too complicated, or makes too big of a mess I tend to avoid it.
When I saw fall leaves cut from old music pages at Girl in Pink I knew this was my kind of craft.
I had an old hymnal that I bought half off at Salvation Army for the purpose of crafting.
Here you see leaves cut from the cover pages which were printed in burgundy.
I hung them from twine with teeny tiny clothes pins found at the craft store and draped them on my drying rack.
(I’m hoping to print some more “fallish” photos of the family to display.)
Here are some more leaves cut from the black and white music pages.
Amanda from Girl in Pink soaked her leaves in coffee to give them a more aged look.
(I haven’t done that step yet since I did this in about 10 minutes in between my Saturday chores and errands.)
Last week my oldest daughter and her family came over for dinner.
My daughter and I did this quick and easy craft together.
I bought two foam pumpkins at Dollar Tree.
First we painted the ugly green stems with brown craft paint.
Then a section at a time we painted Mod Podge on the pumpkins covering them with torn pieces of the music,
which we then covered with more Mod Podge.
We perched them each on a small bowl to let them dry overnight.
(This sort of reminded me of doing papier mache.)
Quick, easy and cute!
