This is a simple technique which involves a paper plate (one of our favourite crafting ingredients!) and lots of colourful paint. You will need some patience while the "tree" dries!
You will need:
Paint in autumn shades
Brown card (we used an old cardboard box)
Put a blob of four different autumn shades of paint in the middle of a paper plate.
Blobs of paint on the plate
Using a fork, gently swirl the paint together.
Swirling the paint with a fork
Tilt the plate so the paint runs around the plate. Leave the plate to dry.
Tilting the plate
Ready! Leave the paint to dry
Cut the edges from the plate so that all that is left is covered in paint.
Cut a trunk and branches from brown card. You can use our photo above as a guide.
Glue the branches to the plate so that the colourful plate forms the leaves of the tree.
