It’s almost getting to be that time of year when the leaves change color. It’s a beautiful time of year, in my opinion. My favorite season. And this Paper Plate Fall Trees Craft is one of my favorite paper plate crafts, too.
This is a gorgeous fall season decorative craft that’s so fun to put together. To make it even easier, we have a Free Printable Fall Tree Template to make putting together extra easy breezy.
Make a Fall Tree Scene on a Paper Plate
To make our Paper Fall Trees Craft you will need our fall tree template, construction paper in fall colors, a paper plate, glue stick, and scissors.
Fall Tree Craft Supplies Needed
- Fall Tree Template
- Construction paper – orange, yellow, blue, green, brown
- Paper plate
- Glue stick
Paper Plate Fall Scene Step by Step Directions
Begin by printing the fall tree template.
Now, select different fall colors of construction papers, along with dark brown for the trunk pattern. Trace the template patterns on the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely.
Glue the small leaf patterns on the small branches of the tree trunk pattern.
Continue gluing the leaves on to the trunk pattern and then flip the trunk pattern to the other side so the little branches are showing.
Next, glue the large tree pattern on top of the tree trunk pattern, with the branches and leaves showing.
Then, grab a paper plate and blue paper. Cut out a round shape from the blue paper to fit inside the paper plate. Glue the round paper in place. Also, trace and cut out 2 different grass layers from green colored craft papers. These are half circles with wavy tops.
Apply glue to only the edges of the grass layers and position in place. Keep the top ends of the grass layers open, so that they can be used as pockets to insert the fall trees.
Insert the trees inside the grass layer pockets to complete the craft.
