Crown trees cut out of cardboard. Further two options:

  1. Paint them with oil paints. We take the brightest, make several strokes, wait for drying, repeat. So until we fill the whole crown.

Garlands of autumn leaves are very fond of kindergartens and schools. If you decide to tackle this craft, make a few threads and to decorate the house - they will immediately add comfort.

a garland of autumn leaves

The first step is to prepare a lot of paper leaves. We advise you to print ready-made stencils on a color printer. You can also print or copy just one piece of paper on white paper, and then transfer it to color.

It is very convenient to fold a stack of 5-6 sheets and cut the leaves at once in several pieces. True, sometimes with maple leaves not very smooth. In a word, practice and find the best option, as you need a lot of leaves.

For this craft it is best to take two-sided colored paper, as the leaves will constantly spin - the white side will ruin the picture. You can replace the paper with cardboard or shiny packaging foil.

autumn garland

Leaflets need to be attached to the thread. You can sew them (very convenient to stitch on a typewriter, if it is cardboard). Or simply make 2-3 stitches along the length of the sheet. If you want to make a garland not a “rain”, but a continuous hanging thread, make one hole in the base of the sheet.Insert enough tight rope into it.

The more there will be threads and paper sheets, the more beautiful the autumn hack will turn out. If you do not have such a quantity of colored cardboard or paper, you can paint each sheet with watercolor and add veins with a felt-tip pen.


A beautiful cardboard tree can be part of a great crafts or an independent accessory. It can be made absolutely tiny or even meter - it all depends on what your goal is.

First you need to draw a tree on the workpiece. We advise you to use a ready-made stencil to simplify your task. Print it or copy it. Then cut it out of cardboard in duplicate.

We should have two identical trees. We fold one of them exactly in the middle (lengthwise). Then we make a cut along this fold so that the workpiece can be planted on the second tree from above. If the silhouette of the tree does not allow this, the incision can be made at the top of the crown.

It remains only to cut a lot of leaves out of paper and stick them to the branches. If necessary, use paints.

By the way, in this way you can make cardboard trees for various performances or productions in school and kindergarten. Take note of this idea.

We advise you to cover the table with newspapers or sheets of paper, because paint can splash it. We need real autumn leaves: dried or fresh. It is better to take a few different ones to make the work more interesting.

We take gouache and we coat a sheet with a thick layer. Mix colors, make one half yellow, and the other red. Or play with them even more. You can paint the sheet completely or put a few points. It is advisable to pay attention to edges and streaks, so that the imprint is more distinct.

Then simply press the blank against white or colored paper. Do so with a few sheets to paint a beautiful picture. If something did not succeed, simply draw the necessary with a brush or felt-tip pens.

paper mushrooms

We suggest you understand this technique using a simple example.To make such amanitas, you need to cut a minimum of parts. Leg shape resembles a pear. For the hat you need to cut a rectangle. Mentally fold it in half: this length will correspond to the size of the cap.

We start to bend the rectangle with an accordion after 0.5 or 1 cm (depending on the size of the desired crafts). Then we fold it in half, fix it with a bracket or glue it along the butt edge.

Fasten to the cardboard first leg, then the cap. Add circles (speckles on the mushroom), make green grass.

The same technique is suitable for other autumn applications. For example, you can make a picture in the form of umbrellas and draw a leaf fall.
