This year seems to have gone by in a flash. It seems like only yesterday BB and I were doing his sticky autumn tree.   Once again we making our annual autumn tree, this years one is a q-tip stamping autumn tree pictures with sensory spice paints. We have actually made q-tip autumn trees before, but they were made using a single q-tip, this time we used a bundle of them at once. The sensory spice paints also added a really nice extra element to the pictures. Now they the pictures smell like autumn too!

Make sure you follow my autumn craft board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own q-tip stamping autumn tree pictures you will need:

  • Paints
  • Q-tips
  • Elastic band
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper
  • Spices – we used nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, all spice, and cloves

To make your spice paints mix in the spice to each colour, then mix in a little water to loosen them up. I tried to make sure that if I was using a lighter colour then I would mix it with a lighter spice e.g. ginger went in the yellow, whereas cloves went in the brown.

Get a bundle of q-tips and use an elastic band to hold them together.

Next paint on the trunk and branches of the trees.

Finish off the picture by using the bundle of q-tips as a stamp to add the leaves.
