Spooky Tree Painting

We were (& still are) stuck indoors due to illness the last several days. I decided a little painting was in order, but since the girls were stuck on the couch & it was extremely windy out I decided to let nature do the painting.

While the kids watched from the window I tied paintbrushes to our little tree/bush with yarn and dipped each one into Halloween colors (orange, purple & black). The kids were just giggly with excitement that the tree would paint them a spooky masterpiece.

The wind was just wild! Every 15-20min we would re-dip the brushes into paint. The tree created many different strokes, but the neatest were the swirls.

The painting is a neat addition to our Halloween creations in our playroom.

We are very excited to let nature paint a fall scene soon.
