A stroll through the woods with my toddler this past weekend resulted in a basket full of sticks, moss, and leaves of blaze and gold. The biggest leaves she wanted to paint but once we got out the craft box we changed our plans.
Using a paint stick, baby food jar, jut string, packaging paper, and our basket of nature we made this fun tree in about an hour.
Take your paint stick and wrap it with your paper crumpled to look like tree bark. Rip more paper and twist into tree branches and tie to trunk with string. After you have the tree the way you want start tying on your favorite leaves. We used the moss to cover the glass jar base to complete our harvest tree.
What fun crafts are you doing with leaves right now?
