Monday, August 2, 2021

Here is your step-by-step guide to creating your own paintbrush by collecting natural materials!


  • Sticks/twigs
  • Bristles: pine needles, leaves, flower head/buds, tree buds
  • String
  • Paint


First, gather your brush materials, this part can as fun as the painting part! You'll want to gather needles, leaves, sticks, and twigs, for the paintbrush handle and bristles. Once you have your materials wrap your bristle materials eventing around the tip of the stick and secure them with the string. 

Now that your bristles are secure you can start to paint!
