Fall Trees!


We took a branch and put it inside clay(air drying clay), then painted it fall colors and sprinkled glitter all over. Then the kids hung leaves that they decorated from Oriental Trading on the tree.

These Fall Trees were made with Paper bags.

1.First cut lunch bag into half inch strips.  Start at the opening and cut half way down the bag.
2.Open bag and stand it up,hold base of bag with one hand and twist the middle of bag to create the trunk of the tree.
3.Twist 2 or 3 of the strips together to create branches.
4.Tear strips of different colored pieces of paper and glue onto the branches.

Paper Strip Pumpkins

These Pumpkins are as cut as can be! For the little one here is what is needed:

  • 1 Sheet of orange construction paper (9x12 inches)
  • Scissors (fancy edge scissors make the pumpkin even cuter)
  • A sharp pencil
  • 2 Brads
  • 1 thin strip of green construction paper (aproximately 1/4in x 3 inches) for stem/vine
  • 1 Small piece of green construction paper for the leaves
  • White glue
  • Assorted craft supplies for decorating the pumpkin
  1. Cut five strips aproximately 1 inch wide by 12 inches long from the orange paper.
  2. Fold one strip in half to find the middle (or measure 6 inches from the side).
  3. Poke a small hole through the center of all five strips with the sharpened pencil.
  4. Poke a small hole at each end of the strips about 1/2 inch from the end.
  5. Poke a brad through the center holes in the strips, and flatten the legs of the brad to hold the strips in place.
  6. Fan the strips out in a circle.
  7. Curve the strips up, one by one, and poke the second brad through the hole at the end of each strip, going in order around the pumpkin.
  8. Once you have all the strips on the second brad (the last couple might be a little tricky), flatten the legs of the second brad.
  9. Tear or cut out a couple of green leaves.
  10. Curl the strip of green paper around a pencil and hold it while you count to twenty.
  11. Uncurl the strip slightly and glue on top of the pumpin for a stem/vine.
  12. Glue the leaves on the top of the pumpkin to hide the second brad.
  13. Decorate your pumpkin as desired.
