Fake Tree Goes Fall!

My two little leaf collectors want a project a day for their growing collection. So, we decided to give our artificial ficus tree a "Fall" look!
Once again, we pulled out our hole punch and glitter glue:Decorated some of the leaves with the kids' monograms, crosses, glitter dots, paint ... and left some plain:Then we punched holes, threaded gold string and decorated the ficus as if it were changing colors with the season:
Kind of brightens up that corner a bit!

As an update to my little chestnut bowl post ... my kids have taken a liking to coloring the tops of them!! Every time they have the markers out, a few more get "dressed up!"

That tree is adorable. I've been looking for some simple ideas to warm up my apartment (all white walls that we can't paint!) and make it feel more cozy, so I'm glad I found your comment on SITS!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!
