An amazing forest miracle awaits!

Other ideas

Applique can be not only on paper. To decorate school classrooms before the autumn holiday, appliqué on window glass is used. In this case, it is necessary to cut out the trunk and branches of a tree from double-sided colored paper and glue it to the window using a concentrated soap solution.

Maple leaves are cut from construction paper in red, yellow and orange.

But leaves painted with watercolors look more impressive – in this case you can create transitions of shades from yellow to orange, and from orange to red.

They are also fixed to soap.

An unusual tree can be made from coffee and corn flakes. To create such a craft, you can involve children from a very early age; even a one-year-old baby can handle it. Draw a template on paper and then divide the responsibilities.

The main thing is to make sure that the powder does not end up in the child’s mouth.

An unusual technique for creating autumn crafts is plasticineography. This is a useful technique – it not only develops the baby’s imagination, but also prepares his hand for writing and improves fine motor skills. To create a drawing from plasticine, you need to draw the outline of a tree on paper, then take a piece of modeling mass and smear it along the contours with strong movements.

With some imagination, you can use any other available materials to create a tree – peas, millet and even pasta.

Another way to create a “Tree” applique from dry leaves is presented in the following video.

, everything is very simple. елка из крепированной бумаги

When done, use paper trees

for decorating a mantel or tables.

From dyed rice and pumpkin seeds

It is better to use acrylic paints, because they do not paint your hands while working, like gouache. You can also use safer food colorings.

The cereal is easy to husk. Dry rice (any kind) is poured into a deep container; there is no need to rinse it in advance.
If it is food coloring, then it is diluted separately in a small amount of water. Pour it into the rice and mix thoroughly. Leave for a while so that the dye is absorbed.

Then the baking tray is covered with baking paper and rice is poured onto it. You can dry it naturally in the room or use the oven (150-200 degrees). The rice is ready when it becomes crumbly.

If you use gouache or acrylic, then the rice is poured into a packaging bag (without holes), paint is added there, everything is thoroughly mixed. For 1 cup of rice, approximately 1 tsp. paint, you can dilute it slightly with water if the consistency is too thick.
As soon as the cereal is well colored, pour it onto a baking sheet in an even layer and leave to dry naturally.

Now you can start applique.
Make a model – a tree trunk on cardboard. Then mark the boundaries of the crown with a simple pencil. Grease the cardboard generously with PVA glue and pour in the rice, carefully distributing it. Wait until completely dry. Afterwards, you can lift the shelf to brush away excess grains.

This DIY craft is suitable for schoolchildren, for an exhibition on the theme of autumn made from natural materials, if there are no gifts from the forest at hand.

Making from cotton pads

Cotton pads are used instead of crown paper. Since they are white, they must first be painted in bright autumn colors and dried well.

To work you will need:

  • thick light cardboard (background);
  • brown construction paper or marker;
  • PVA glue;
  • cotton pads;
  • watercolor or gouache;
  • brushes or pipette.

First you need to prepare cotton pads. To do this, they are painted with brushes and paints. Cotton wool perfectly absorbs moisture, so just dripping colored water on them is enough. Therefore, instead of brushes, you can use a pipette, and tint the water in advance, but so that the color is concentrated.

Leaves with streaks look original.
To do this, first apply yellow paint (1-2 drops) to the disk, and then add red. Beautiful stains form along the boundaries of the drops.

Then the cotton pads must be dried thoroughly.
It’s better to leave them on the table overnight. And under no circumstances should you place it on a heater, as the device or battery will also become stained.

Now you can start making wood. First, a tree trunk is cut out of brown paper and glued to the background. Then the leaves are glued on.

Now we need to make the tree trunks.

To do this, take white paper, using a ruler and pencil,

set aside from the edge (from the one that is longer) 2.5 cm

Then, we cut off what we measured and fold the resulting workpiece

in half and cut along the fold line, you get two identical blanks,

fold each of them in half.

Then we cut along the fold line, we get 4 identical cavities.

Autumn trees using applique technique - About paper .net

Now we take one strip and a marker, wrap the marker in a white strip and, using glue – a pencil, glue the “beginning” and “end” of the strip, after gluing, take out the marker.

In this way we glue all the remaining strips.

Now, take our base, place the “birch tree trunks” and glue them with glue.

After the birch trunks are ready, you can begin to make branches in the same way as trunks.

Take yellow, orange, green sheets of paper and cut them into strips,

1.5 – 2 centimeters wide. When the set of strips is ready, then

fold them in half and cut them. Using scissors, we make curls from the strips. These will be birch leaves.

Autumn trees using applique technique - About paper .net

We begin to glue the curls to the top of the trunks.
