Botanical Art With Mom's Leaves

















Remember when my mom sent me some fall leaves? Well rather than pressing them in a book to find later,
I decided to make some fun art, so I can see them all the time and think of Mom and Idaho.
Following these easy instructions, I went to a thrift store and an old book store {both conveniently right down the street}
and found three old frames {$25 for the lot, with some rad old pictures in them I can reuse later} and an old gardening book {just over a dollar}.
I had the house to myself so I settled in for a night of crafting {with glitter glue and a spoon!} and wine.
It was good times, and now I have something happy to look at instead of an empty space above our bed!

Thanks, Mom!
