Tin Foil Embossed Trees For All Seasons

Being a New Englander, I enjoy watching the seasons change. I eagerly anticipate the trees filling up with leaves in the spring and summer. Watching the snow falling on the bare branches in the winter is simply magical. And the fall….oh the fall. It is my favorite season of all. I love seeing the vibrant reds, yellows and oranges dancing around in the trees. It is such a beautiful sight.  Fall is not quite here yet, but we wanted to start our first fall craft. Once we saw how pretty our project came out though, what started as one foil embossed fall tree, turned into a tree craft for each season.

We are deep into the fall now and the cold weather is here. The leaves are falling and some of the trees are bare now. I love the fall trees, but I also love the haunting beauty that comes with a bare tree, especially against the night sky.bleeding tissue paper tree painting - spooky night autumn, fall or winter trees.

Happy Easter! I hope everyone enjoys their days with their families.

Yesterday was the first day that I felt like it was actually spring. The sun was out & Mai and I ventured out doors to take a walk. The wind was strong, but we were enjoying the fresh air & sun shine.  The green is starting to peek out from behind the melting snow in our yard. The warm weather is finally on its way & we couldn’t be happier.

After our walk it was craft time. To celebrate our change of season, we made a craft inspired by the four seasons.

Hand Print Seasons 

We painted Mai’s hand & arm in brown & stamped 4 separate sheets of paper.

Have your child imprint the winter sheet with white finger prints for snow & red, yellow & orange finger prints for falling leaves. Use green paint for the summer tree’s leaves & blue for spring rain. Let dry & frame your sweet little finger prints to enjoy the best of all the seasons all year round.
