5 Fall Tree Crafts for Kids

With all the beauty of the fall trees outside, it’s fun to bring some of the color inside for a few easy crafts with the kids!

1. Three Dimensional Fall Trees – These colorful fall trees from 1+1+1=1 are made from painted paper towel rolls and silk leaves from the dollar store.

2. Fingerprint Fall Tree – This is a fabulous wedding display idea from Style Unveiled, but you could certainly adapt it for a family keepsake.

3. Marshmallow Stamped Apple Trees – We tried this craft shortly after visiting the apple orchard, and it was so much fun!  You free-style the tree shape, and then dip mini-marshmallows into paint and stamp for the apples.

4. Handprint Fall Colored Tree – I was pleased with how this handprint tree turned out a couple of weeks ago.  Another great keepsake!

5. Fall Button Branch – Isn’t this a sweet idea from Meet the Dubiens?  My mom used to have a button basket that all of us loved playing in…I’m thinking I need to start one of my own for fun crafts like this!

    What great ideas! I wonder if on the first one, you could use outdoor colored leaves? We are going to try it.

    Fantastic ideas! You always have such great craft ideas. I really like the hand print tree, though I bet that one’s a messy one to clean up — which means the kids will love doing it 😀

    The 3D trees look awesome too. An interesting way to reuse something! 😀
