How to make your fall paper tree:
Here is the step by step instructions for a fall construction paper tree. Then watch it all in action in the video below.
Start by cutting your brown paper into a bunch of long strips. You do not need to measure their thickness, just as long as you have one the width you would like to use for your trunk.
Take the trunk strip and cut or tear it in half.
Use your glue stick to attach one-half of the truck to the blue sheet of paper. Set aside the other half of your trunk for later. Now, glue the rest of your strips to the top of your trunk.
Once all of the strips are attached glue on the other side of the trunk to hide and secure all of your branch ends.
Next, start to work your way around the tree branches to attach them to the blue background. Pick up the branch and loop it around twice then attach to the blue paper with glue. Teach your little one to count to 10 while holding the strip down. This way they are nice and secure.
This will create your 3D effect!
Now it’s time for some leaves. Just grab some paper scraps of your favorite fall colors and cut out a bunch of simple leaves.
Time to start gluing.
It won’t take long until you have a fun fall 3D construction paper tree!
