All The Colors We’re Painting Our Fall Foliage This Season
It’s officially leaf-peeping season! While you’re undoubtedly excited, you’re probably also thinking: How do I decide which colors to use when I paint my fall foliage? The choices are endless, as is the judgement of others should you get it wrong. You don’t want to be the only person plucking boring yellow leaves off your trees come winter, so to simplify your seasonal leaf-painting plan, here are a few of the hottest hues for fall.
This robust red says you’ll be taking no prisoners this autumn! Shellacking your yard’s flora in this twist on a classic color will make you a tree-painting trendsetter.
What could be more appealing than a tree that looks like it’s draped in delicious cheese? This sharp blend of yellow and orange will make every mouth water. With this outside-the-box color, you’ll be the envy of every arbor enthusiast in your neighborhood.
It’s the spooky season, so why not get into the (evil) spirit? Let your inner goth shine by painting all those leaves the blackest of black. Most people think a color this dark is depressing, but you can’t deny that it’ll stand out from the crowd.
There’s never a bad time for this statement shade—not even fall, when you’re especially unlikely to find it in nature (fashion is all about fun—who says your autumn trees have to look real?). While most people might not think of pink as an iconic fall color, all the hottest tree designers are dabbling in it this season. So consider bucking tradition and giving your leaves a lovely coat of blush.
Your Favorite Superhero
I’m going to let you in on a secret: You don’t have to stick to solid colors. You can paint anything you want on those leaves. Why not get the kids in on the fun and paint their favorite superheroes? It’s an autumnal statement that kids of all ages can appreciate.
Don’t be a stick in the mud—have fun with this usually stuffy tradition. Happy tree-painting, everyone!
