Going to a craft store is a joy that I love sharing with my kids. They are old enough now to let them wonder around without fearing they might break something. Discovering new stuff and showing them to me is something they enjoy a lot. But mostly they get really excited when we leave home with a new craft supply, like the circle hole punch we bought last week. This 3D fall tree craft is the first craft we made using our new tool.
I don’t know how I’ve been crafting for so long without a circle hole punch. I love it and will definitely use it a lot from now on.
Our 3D fall tree is such an easy craft for preschoolers and older kids. If you are a teacher, you can use it in the classroom, with your students. The trees would make a nice display at the beginning of the season.
You can easily adapt it for the rest of the season. Replace the leaf colors with pink and bright green for spring, different shades of green for summer and white snowflakes for winter.
This paper tree is a nice addition to our fall craft collection.

How to make a 3D fall tree
Step 1: Gather your materials. Start by using the hole punch to make several paper circles out of the orange, yellow, red and green cardstock paper.
Step 2: Fold all the circles in half.
Step 3: Cut the tree trunk from the brown cardstock paper. Glue it at the bottom of the light blue paper stock.
Step 4: Glue the leaves on, making sure to keep the folded side up.
