Hi! I'd like to use your picture to place in a lesson plan. I work for a before and after school daycare in Missouri called Kid's Country. The picture and details will be in my curriculum plan for 2012-2013. Thanks! -Shannon LaRosh, Kid's Country Lee's Summit MO

Kimberly said...

Cute! I've been wanting to make one of these for a while.

Andrea said...

My kids would love to make this. Thanks for sharing.

dee said...

I'm thinkin' VBS craft! Thanks for the idea!

Susan said...

For older students you can use it to teach adjectives. Write words on leaves to describe the trunk, the leaves, or just the tree itself.

Ben said...

Great idea! My daughter will love this! We could even do different sized ones with different coloured leaves and create a fairy forrest. Thanks.

Great tutorial with very cute results!

Dianne said...

did these at school from another website. The kindergarteners had a really hard time with them but the 2nd grade loved them and really got into it. As a home project any age could do it with help.

I love your tree, I have to make one for my classroom with my little ones :) thanks for sharing

Queen Bea Scraps said...

What a cute idea. It can be used for Halloween and/or Fall. I think I'm going to try to make it.

Nadine said...

Thank you for this cute idea. I made the trees with my sons yesterday.


molly said...

What a great idea, I love it and will do it at school with my kids.
Lovely hugs

Verena said...

This is such an awesome idea! Thanks so much for sharing!


Jenn Hethcoat said...

I'd love to pin this (and maybe a million of your super cute ideas!) but I wanted to double check with you first since it isn't listed in your share buttons.

If not... I'll bookmark!

We have shadow boxes on our wall for each of our three kids and every season/holiday we try to put a new art project in them ... we got the shadow boxes specifically so that if a cute 3D project like this came along we'd still be able to display it!


Clammy said...

Feel free to pin this idea (or any other one on here that you like)! Thanks!

Hey Pikadillycharm,

I work for http://www.sheknows.com and are doing an article on cheap crafts. We came across your page (http://pikadillycharm.blogspot.com/search/label/Paper%20Craft) and was wondering if we could use your photos from it, if we link back to your site?

Clammy said...

Thanks everyone! I am glad that so many of you are enjoying this craft! =)

Clammy said...

Hi Katie,

We at Pikadillycharm would be more than happy to let you use our photos and link back to us!
Thanks! =)


Joséphine said...


J'ai découvert, il y a quelques temps, votre blog et j'ai été intéressée par les activités que vous décrivez. Surtout celles faites avec les enfants âgés de 3 à 6 ans.
Ancienne institutrice d'école maternelle en France, j'ai moi-même un blog où je présente des travaux d'Arts Plastiques faits à l'école.
J'aurais souhaité vous emprunter 2 photos pour présenter votre blog à mes collègues.
Me permettez-vous de publier les photos " Paper bag Fall Tree" sur mon blog? Je rajouterai, bien sûr, un lien vers votre site.
Merci d'avance.
Toutes mes excuses de n'avoir pas écrit en Anglais, mais mon anglais n'est pas bon du tout.

My son made this and then lightly painted the limbs, tree trunk, roots and grass with watercolors.

It turned out awesome!

Clammy said...

Hi Josephine,

You are more than welcome to use some of our photos as long as you link back to our site.

I'm glad that you find this post useful. Have fun with it. =)

Beautiful trees:) Thanks for sharing

Tom Red Monkey said...

Lovely autumnal piece, bet the kids love it! We're looking to ways to incorporate craft like this into our learning & play ranges - working on some Halloween ideas right now!


Anonymous said...

Do you think it would work, or have you have tried, making it with leaf bags??? They would be a larger version for my classroom... I am thinking of trying it but don't want to spend the money if I don't have to!

MIla said...

Well organize tutorial! I linked it in my post.

MIla said...

Check pls,

Anonymous said...

This is a great idea. I brought it to my Wolf Scouts Den meeting for a holiday craft for autumn/halloween, and when the kids (7 year olds) were done with the trees, they made paperbag puppets of their costumes or favorite monsters. Thank you - all the parents have been wanting to do this forever.

Anonymous said...

Great idea, we used real leaves from our yard!

Anonymous said...

There are paper punches with small leaves of either a maple or an oak leaf, these would be fun to use with this tree! Doing it for a Fall Festival Craft for parents while the kiddos participate in games, etc. Thanks for a fabulous idea!!

Susie Metzler said...

What a cool idea- I am using this for my 1st OCT Cub Den meeting as an activity. In line with the new program- I added blue cardstock words (I built a table in Word) and cut them out for the 9 points of the Scout Law. The scouts can glue them on the tree around the leaves. Love this idea. Thanks for posting

Marie Ericksen said...

Love this! We made them at my Girl Scout meeting last week. Easy tutorial with great pictures!

what a nice idea! Thanks for sharing. Gabi

Amy O'Connor said...

This is super cute! I plan on doing this with my 5th and 6th grade girls at church tomorrow to celebrate Thanksgiving. We'll make the trees then add leaves stating what they are thankful for. Thank you for sharing your fun ideas!

Shweta S said...

This is such good idea. I loved it... And I have included this post in my '15 Awesome Gratitude filled Thanksgiving Ideas' blog post. Do come over and check it out!

I'm using it tomorrow with just yellow leaves and calling it a mustard plant/tree to teach the parable of the mustard seed. Thanks for a great craft!

Baigon said...

Awesome post!This is a great idea! I am always looking for great 're purposing' ideas. I have tons of magazines that are larger like rolling stones that are not worth anything. I could make some gift bags out of those i'm thinking. Thanks for sharing!

Emily Seilhamer said...

I work in activities at a nursing home and my residents loved this craft! My husband and I also have an unconventional Christmas tree tradition so this year we made a life size version out of a 15 ft paper bag. I wanted to thank you for the inspiration! This won't let me upload a picture but here's a link to our Christmas album and the time lapse video we made while building it. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

This is really cute! Good job! I'm not as crafty as you but I saw some good mottos about Autumn that would be wonderful touch to add on the leaves of the trees. I'll leave them here and let me know what you think! Autumn Slogans
