Fall always reminds me of trees, so I’ll just keep this leaf and theme going this week! On the last post I shared a pinecone craft activity that I called “Pinecone Pictures”. My daughter really enjoyed that one and I shared how much I love nature, and how my childhood memories of pine trees were paramount for me. This time I’m doing a fall button tree with my kinder. This craft was very simple to make as nearly all of my crafts are, and again, there is just something about the monumental strength of a tree that reels me in every time- even for a simple craft.
What you need:
- construction paper
- fall-colored buttons
- scrapbooking paper
What to do:
Take a piece of construction paper and draw the shape of a tree onto it. Cut out the tree. You can also make cut creative inserts to make branches to make your fall button tree really come to life.
Depending on the color of your scrapbooking paper, you could vary up your tree color. I chose black because I thought it would really stand out against orange paper.
Have your child glue the back of the tree and slip it onto the scrapbooking paper smoothing it out.
Here is my final result, and I thought you might enjoy it in video format so you can really see how I do it.
Here’s our bonus video.
That’s it! Like I said, it’s really easy and my girlie had a great time with this fall button tree. Try adding different color backgrounds and different tree colors. You can use multicolored buttons and use different cutout designs. Make it uniquely your own: your own fall button tree.
