I’ve been loving spending one on one time with my youngest while our oldest goes to her weekly homeschooling program. This past week we kept our fall theme going and created a Fine Motor Skills Contact Paper Fall Tree Craft. It started out as an apple tree but looks more like a Fall tree, so it could be an apple tree or fall leaf tree. Either way, she really enjoyed it. This post may contain affiliate links.
Fine Motor Skills Contact Paper Fall Tree Craft
If your kids love creating fall crafts, this easy tree craft is the cutest to hang up on your window.
- Contact paper (2 rectangle sheets)
- Brown construction paper
- Brown yarn (cut into small pieces)
- Yellow, red, and green tissue paper (cut into squares)
First, we cut out two rectangle sheets of contact paper and used one sticky side up. I also cut out a tree trunk out of construction paper and had Kaidence stick it on her contact paper.
We then cut out brown yarn into small pieces, which she used to stick on her tree trunk. I really liked how she had to use her index and thumb to pick up her pieces, making this a great fine motor skills activity.
We also cut into squares our tissue papers in red, yellow, and orange. We were trying to create an apple tree with different colored apples, but it turned out more like a Fall tree and that’s okay with us. I think it turned out super cute and colorful!
I separated all the colored tissue paper on the same colored plates so that we could review colors, as we did, are an art project.
Once my daughter finished adding all her pieces we used the second sheet of the contact paper sticky side with the sticky side and sealed the craft. I then cut around the tissue paper and the tree trunk filled with brown yarn.
I absolutely loved how it turned out and I especially love that we got to spend that time together! It became the perfect decoration we needed in our home! Plus, our neighbors get to enjoy the beauty of Fall my daughter created as well!

Are you getting any Fall weather yet where you live?
This project turns out so nicely. I especially like the use of yarn for the trunk, I’ve never thought of doing that before and it’s a great idea. Thanks!
Thank you! I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but it all worked out 🙂
This looks great! and easy enough even for this not-so-crafty mama. I’m putting it on the fall to-do list and pinning!
This turned out great! What a fun way to decorate your windows and I love the fine motor aspects of the craft.

How great that you got to spend some extra one-on-one time together. I bet she loves it as much as you do! (And the fall tree came out great – I just love contact paper!)
