spring blossom transient art

Nothing says "Spring" quite like the first blossoms on the trees.

Whether you have Spring outside or not, you can make beautiful and ever-changing blossoms inside.



I painted some branches.  Photocopy paper and tempera paint.



I figured that they would look much more artistic if I put them in empty frames.  (Also used to frame loose parts art.)


The "blossoms" are all dollar store buys - buttons, beads, heart table scatter, pom poms ...


Put all together, they are ready for Spring blossom artists.


I love seeing how the kids choose to create.


Some follow the lines of the branches.


Some use all one "type" of blossom.  Or two.


One little fellow had a story about each blossom he put on a branch.  Some blossoms were girls, some were boys, and they were all going somewhere together.  It seemed quite complicated!!


All unique and all beautiful.
