spring colored painted leaves

When my hubby brought home some magnolia leaves from Dallas a month ago, I pressed most of them in between pages of large books.

I pulled them out last night and had the kids help me paint them. We used Delta Soy Paints and painted fun and bright designs on them.

I am hoping to string them all together for a spring garland.
