Fall Tree Art Craft for Kids

Note from Melanie: The Fall season is not really one we experience living in Florida, which is why I’m loving this pretty Fall craft and art piece by our kids crafts contributor, Lisa! Read on to find out how to bring a little of Fall into your home with this easy kids Fall craft, using materials found at Walmart. {Sponsored content}

We recently moved from beautiful Virginia to Texas, where the falling of leaves is not a common occurrence. (Sigh.) When asked to work on a fall craft, all I could think of were leaves – beautiful color-changing leaves, floating through the air, covering the ground. (Double sigh.) In memory of all those beautiful, ever-changing, falling leaves, I knew I had to create something that related to it.  So, this lovely mini piece of Fall art was created. I title it: Falling Leaves. (So predictable, I know. )

Would you like to make your own Fall Tree art craft with the kids and bring in a bit of those ever-changing fall colors into your home? Let me show you how easy it is!

How to Make a Fall Tree Art Piece:

Begin by drawing a tree trunk with a pencil on the beige 5×7 card stock. Then paint it using the brown acrylic paint and let it dry.
