Autumn Window Decoration
(Goblin is 34 months)
The Autumnal Equinox took place on 22 September hailing the end of Summer and the Beginning of my favourite season, Autumn (or Fall for you guys who can't spell Autumn). It doesn't feel very Autumny here. There are no leaves turning and in fact today it was blazing sunshine. But none the less I felt the need to mark the start of the countdown to winter. So Goblin and I did "an Art".
I cut out some tissue paper leaf shapes in suitably Autumn colours. And stuck some stickback plastic (contact paper) on the table, stick side up.
Then I let Goblin stick the leaves to the plastic as he saw fit - notice his clever way of leaning on the table without getting his hands stuck to the plastic (he did that all by himself).
When all the leaves were stuck on it looked like this. I took a large piece of black paper, folded it in half and cut out a leaf shape. Then I cut out two vains - one for each side. I stuck the plastic in the middle of the folded black paper and glued it in place, gluing the vains in the middle of the leaf silhouette.
And this is what the finished product looked like.
