- First download and print out the FREE tree shape printable on a sheet of single white cardstock paper.
- Using your scissors, go ahead and trim out the “cloud” shape, as well as the inners.
- Now grab your contact paper and cut two pieces the same length.
- Take off the protective paper off one and lay it on a flat surface.
- Lay your tree cutout on the contact paper.
- Grab your tissue paper and cut it into small squares.
- Now have your child place it on the contact paper, to make a beautiful design.
- Once done, grab the other piece of contact paper and remove it’s protective sheet.
- Then lay it on top of the other piece and press firmly. Make sure every corner is stuck together.
- Now use your scissors to trim around the piece so no excess contact paper is visible.
- To finish off the stained glass fall tree craft, trace/cut out a handprint tree trunk from the brown cardstock paper and attach it with some adhesive to the decorate suncatcher piece.
- Then display proudly on a window with some tape!
- Don’t forget to share pictures with us of your colorful trees! #gluedtomycrafts
