This week we’re exploring Fall with twigs, combs, and glue painting! Fall is my favorite time of year – beautiful foliage, apple-cider, and bold scents! I’ve been working on my twig mobile idea, well, for nine months, so after seeing the warm Fall glitter colors, it hit me – glitter leaf mobile! This quick, inexpensive, and fun art project for kids costs just $2! No time to make a mobile? The glitter leaves make a great art project too!  Inexpensive, fun, and sparkly!

For the full tutorial and fun sparkly photos, see Fall glitter leaf mobile at All For The Boys blog.
