Are you looking for some fun and easy crafts to do with your kids?  As a homeschooling mom, I am always looking for fun ideas that are not only fun for the kids, but are also fun decorations for the home.

I was in the mood for some sort of wall tree designed specifically around the autumn months.  We used recycled paper bag wrapping paper as our tree.  We basically used this demonstration as inspiration and just went larger.

You can print out leaf templates and have your kids decorate them with whatever art supplies you have available or you can purchase a kit at places such as Target.  I did both just to mix it up a little bit.  To add a hint of green within the changing leaves we crumbled up green tissue paper.

You can make your fall tree as thin or as full as you want. We had taped leaves to the wall as if they were falling, but they kept {falling} off.   We did a thin version to make it easier to transform into a Christmas tree when the time comes.

As you can see it’s pretty simple yet very fun.  I love how our wall looks with it too.  The project literally only costs about $7 for supplies.  Nice!

Have any fun and inexpensive craft ideas to share with us?  We would love to read your ideas.  If you would like to contribute your ideas to Michigan Mom Living, contact me at Lindsey@michiganmomliving.com.
