Now you can enjoy the beautiful colors of fall even after all the leaves have fallen to the ground!
This craft is so fun to make that before you know it, you might find your trees doubling and then tripling into...A whole forest of fall colored trees! To make your own forest of stand up trees all you have to do is... Paint a few mini paper plates with fall colors. We picked red, orange, and yellow but brown and even green would also look great.Cut up a bunch of tissue paper into squares. Use a pencil to help crumple up the paper. Dip end into glue and stick onto paper plate.
Older kids can probably skip the pencil and dip crumbled paper directly into glue or add small glue dots onto the plate. This method is helpful for kiddos who might otherwise end up with glue everywhere.Continue to attach tissue paper until your tree is full of fall colored leaves. Let dry. Cut two slits on either end of toilet paper roll. Slide decorated plate into slits. Stand up your tree and enjoy your forest. A grouping of these would look great as a kid made centerpiece for Thanksgiving. You could even write out and attach things family members are thankful for on the other side.
