  • Fold the paper back in half again.
  • With your hands on the outside of the paper, squeeze the paints around to mix them and cover the branches.
  • Open the paper back up to see your finished tree craft and leave to dry.


If possible try not to pour too much paint out onto your tree as this means it's more likely to escape from your folded paper and make a mess. The video for this craft was my first attempt and as you'll see a load of paint spilled out! By my second attempt both mine and my daughters paintings were a lot more controlled so if you know that you have a certain paint pot that's normally a bit of a pain to get paint out of then on this occasion that might want to be the one you go for.
