Fall Leaf Wreath

Fall is by far my favorite season!  I love it weather, colorful leaves, football, sweaters, jean, anything pumpkin...  Today Sweet Girl and I made the most beautiful Fall wreath for our house. 

We used liquid water colors to paint coffee filters.  We used primarily fall-ish colors, although purple did get thrown in there per Sweet Girl's request.  I think using water colors on coffee filters is fun for little ones because the water spreads the color so quickly.

After the coffee filters were completely covered we set them aside to dry.  It doesn't take long...only about 20 minutes or so.

Then I folded up the filters several times and cut our leaves out.  So pretty!  Even the purple leaves look pretty!

I cut out the middle of a paper plate and then Sweet Girl helped me glue on the leaves. 

Ah....the beautiful colors of Fall!
