I saw this fun idea on Babble Dabble Do blog for a rainbow tree.
From that day I was on a constant search for a branch that would work. It took several weeks since around where we live right now 99% of the trees are pines.
What you will need:
- A branch of your liking
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brushes
- Cup with water for setting dirty paint brushes in
- Wet wipes (for easy clean up)
Cover your work surface. I tape (with painters or packing tape) the wax cloth directly on to the table so it doesn’t move around while we work.
TIP: The foam paint brushes are the best for toddlers to work with on this project
Sophia was more interested in using a fewer colors over all covering larger areas.
I placed rocks in a vase to hold up our tree. The tree is a really fun way to display some of our art work we do 🙂
(I painted the vase pink since I wasn’t a fan of the brownish red color it was before. )
