Inspired by all the beautiful colors of Autumn, we made this rainbow using paper painted with nature - leaves and pinecones. Such a fun process art project!

Start with:

  • Cardstock
  • Paint
  • 1 inch Paper Punch
  • Glue
  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Leaves and Pinecones

Create it!:

Step 1: Select a variety of leaves and pinecones to use for painting the cardstock.

Step 2: Use the leaves and pinecones as paintbrushes to paint the cardstock. Allow it to dry.

Step 3: Punch holes (recommended for adults) into the painted cardstock.

Step 4: Arrange and glue the painted circles in a rainbow pattern with rows of red, orange and yellow on cardboard.

Step 5: Cut the cardboard into a rainbow shape.

Such a fun process - a nature find, painting with pinecones and leaves and using the patterns to create a unique rainbow!
