Pine Bough Painting


Pine boughs

White paint


Black or dark construction paper

During the winter, use pine needle boughs to paint with like a brush.  Mix white paint with glitter. Paint on black paper.

For younger ones, use salt water instead of paint and glitter. The salt water will dry as crystals on the paper.
