Red Leaf Yellow Leaf – Yarn Tree

One of our favorite parts of fall is the color the leaves on the trees. We did this fun Yarn Tree to show the fall colors on the trees. This is a fun easy to do craft for fall.

Fall Yarn Trees

We read Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf by Lois Ehlert for the Virtual Book Club. A great book about the Maple Sugar Tree. My girls loved this book last year and loved it again this year.


What you need: fall dot marker tree, glue and yarn red, yellow & orange.

Yarn Trees

The girls put glue on the paper where they wanted the leaves to be. Each had a different idea of how big the tree should be.

Then they put their leaves on. Amelia had to make sure hers had falling leaves as well.

Every now and then they tested to see if all the yarn was staying on or needed more glue.

The yarn was pressed down to make it stick more to the glue.
