Autumn Cork Painting

Here’s a quick fall craft The Littlest Apple and I did the other day using corks, inspired by Pinterest.  This isn’t our first time using corks to paint..we used them last year for our Indian Corn Painting, too.

First, I cut a tree form out of brown construction paper and glued it to the white paper.  You could also paint the tree and then wait for it to dry, but we were being impatient.  Then I presented some fall paint colors and corks of different sizes to paint with.

The Littlest Apple decided that most of the leaves had fallen off of his tree already…

I couldn’t resist making my own.  This was lots of fun!

So easy, but so beautiful!

    Ohhh that is so lovely! I will have to remember it come Autumn here in New Zealand – or maybe I’ll go for a spring growth  palette of greens and some tissue paper blossoms
