Using Nature Paint Brushes is a great way to add some variety to your paintings. It’s also a great activity to get you creating outside!
-Sticks (1 per paint brush)
-Rubber Bands or string (1 per paint brush)
-Items from nature
-Paper – larger is better!
For the sticks: make sure they aren’t rotten or they might break while you are using them. You want them to be about 7″ long.
For your nature items: First, take a walk around your yard and see what you might be able to use. Once you have identified a few items, start collecting! You can use pine needles, chickweed, cedar leaves, fern leaves, & curly dock leaves but you can also use flowers, oak leaves, dog fennel or anything else. Make sure to only pick things you can identify!
