Crafting with Lily

My 11-year-old granddaughter, Lily, visited recently and we made this autumn wreath together.  Inspiration was from Alisa Burke's wonderful tutorial.

We drew leaves on the pages of a discarded book using a black sharpie.  Lily then painted the leaves using watercolor.  When the leaves dried, we cut them out and glued them to a round wood form and added the bow.


  1. What a beautiful young lady your granddaughter is! The wreath is great - the leaves look as though they've been rubber stamped, very impressive and I like the way the colours have blended together.

    (Just to say thanks again for the link on the leaves tutorial on your Dress Up post - I'm going to try that technique myself)

  2. what a gorgeous girl!!! i saw that turorial and thought it was wonderful. The reef turned out beautifully...how nice to do crafty stuff with your grandkids...

  3. Little goddess! What a great project to share with your granddaughter. Bet you both had fun.
    Lovely fall wreath!
