This Layered Watercolor Oak & Acorn Art is fourth in the Autumn Colors Craft Summit we have going on from October 16-20. This is our second layered watercolor piece, and it uses the same techniques as the Mirabelle Plum Art project from this past summer. If you enjoyed that craft, then we know you’ll fall in love with this one. The subjects of this piece are emblematic of fall and the harvest and will serve beautifully as simple wall decor for the season.
Once you’ve gathered your tools and materials for this project, you can tune into the live video workshop on October 19 at 12 p.m. PT. While you can definitely cut your pieces by hand, we recommend a cutting machine for both ease and speed.

In keeping with this series’ theme, we chose this piece for its beautiful fall colors. True, autumn brings to mind burnished coppers, reds, and golds — but we can’t leave out all the rustic greens and browns the season brings as well. I love how simple our layered papercut projects are, and this piece is no exception. Once everything is painted and cut, it’s very easy to put together.
We chose watercolor as our medium because it looks beautiful and lends itself really well to a project like this. Don’t worry if some of your colors blend together or your painting isn’t exactly precise — let it be wild and organic — just as nature intended.
I think this layered watercolor oak and acorn art would be picture-perfect as an accent piece in your kitchen or breakfast nook, but it really fits in just about anywhere.
