Easy Fallen Leaves Tree Craft

I came home from work the other day to discover these displayed in our living room:
I guess my Mother-In-Law made them with the girls while I was gone and they were so cute I had to share them.  Who knew my Mother-In-Law was crafty?  I didn't!

If you want to make these with your kids, here's what you'll need:
  • A bunch of dried leaves with long stems (maple leaves work well)
  • Markers, crayons, or colored pencils
  • Cardstock, cardboard, or thicker paper (my Mother-In-Law used the back of clothes gift boxes so the project stood on it's own when done)
  • Tape

1)  Have your kids draw the trunk of the tree on the cardstock/cardboard.  Let them add what ever other decorations they want to the base of the tree.

Step 2)  Bunch the leaves together like a bouquet of flowers lining the stems up together.

Step 3)  Tape the stem bunch to the cardstock/cardboard over the top of the drawn tree trunk.
Step 4)  Display and enjoy!


  1. This is super cute. I love how you used real leaves. We alwasy collect a lot in the fall & I love that my kids could actually do something with them! Thanks for linking up to TGIF!

  2. So cute! My kids collect fallen leaves in our yard all the time and beg to bring them inside. They would love this craft!
