Let’s Make It:
Start by drawing an outline with your black glue. Black glue is really easy to make yourself but you can also buy it online if you don’t fancy making it.
You’ll need to then wait for the glue to dry so this is a good activity to start and then finish a little later – you could always do some of the autumn crafts I’ve linked to at the end of the page if you’re on a bit of a crafting roll!
Once it’s dry (or at least dryer, we always struggle to wait) you can paint your tree. I’ve used cheap watercolour paints which I think only cost a pound but they’re perfect for mixing together with some water. Use brown for the trees trunk and reds, greens, yellows and orange for the leaves themselves.
