Can you believe it’s that time of year again? I still feel like it’s in the middle of summer (and since it’s still 90 here in Tampa, I supposed that makes sense). Still, whether you’re still caught in the throes of summer or whether you are enjoying some cool fall temperatures, Halloween is just a month away and now is the time to start decorating for fall. Embrace this new season with some fun fall crafts with your kids.
What you’ll need:
- Brown construction paper
- Clear contact paper
- Fall colored tissue paper
- Draw a leaf onto the brown construction paper and cut out. Then cut out the center of the leaf, leaving just an outline. This leaf outline will serve as the frame for your final product.
- Cut a square from the contact paper that is slightly larger than your construction paper leaf. Remove the back of the contact paper and adhere the leaf outline directly to the contact paper.
- Cut your tissue paper into one inch squares in a variety of colors, such as orange, red, and yellow.
- Stick the tissue paper squares onto the contact paper, overlapping them until the leaf is fully covered.
- Trim away the extra contact paper and tissue paper from the frame and find a nice sunny window to hang your leaf!
