Our latest

We made a really pretty craft that you must all make. It was easy and worth keeping! First you need to purchase some glass tea light or votive holders. Then you paint white glue around the outside. (Actually after purchasing the candle holders you should find some small leaves and press them in a book.) Directions are here.
We will make the paper bag scarecrow next.

Next glue your leaves on.
Then as they are drying you rip some tissue paper into 1-2 inch squares.

With equal parts water and glue you paint the pieces on your glass over the leaves.

After they dry (ours weren't fully dry) look what you end up with. They are really pretty. I can't wait to try it in the spring with pansies and violas. Wouldn't that be pretty?

Check out art class. Sculptures out of rock. I was actually quite impressed.

those are so cool! We're going to try that out!!! We'll start with some of our late blooming flowers we have now and that would be so pretty!!! (I have some phlox and actually still have some pansies b/c I dead headed them all summer, so we still have some!)
good idea and thanks for sharing it!

Georgia and Josie, I love to see what you have been up to and what you have been learning! Your votive holders came out very beautiful. Elsie and I will have to make some to decorate for Fall. They would also make really nice gifts. I also thought your rock sculptures were very creative. You girls are lucky to have such an awesome teacher at home! Keep up the good work!

Sorry for such a negative comment at the end of such lovely comments.
