3D Autumn Tree Craft

This year’s autumn tree craft was a little different from are previous years ones (which you can find here and here). It was originally going to be just like the other ones that celebrate the end of summer and beginning of autumn, but we unfortunately had some bad news so they took on a slightly different feel. One of YC’s little Guinea Pigs suddenly died, which obviously left us feeling very sad. So our trees became memorial trees instead for poor little departed Dotty.

Make sure you follow our craft board on Pinterest for more ideas, and don’t forget to pin the Pin at the bottom of the page.

You will need:

  • Card Stock
  • Tissue Paper
  • Glue
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Popsicle sticks (optional)

On the card stock draw around your hand and part of the arm (that will create the trunk) twice. Cut them out.

When you have done that you need to cut a slit going from the bottom to the middle on one of the hands, and on the other you need to go from the top to the middle. You should be able to slot them together to make a 3D tree that stands up.

Add some tape to make sure that they stay in place.

Tear the tissue paper into strips and crumple them to make balls; then stick them onto the tree. As YC and EC were making memorial trees they used the colours that Dotty was, which was white, brown and red. YC kind of did her own thing with the colours.

If your tree becomes slightly top heavy tape some craft sticks onto the truck for support.
