One of our all time favorite fall books is The Little Yellow Leaf by Carin Berger. I am absolutely in love with the story~ all about facing your fears and the joy of friendship. It’s adorable! And the illustrations are beautiful!
Lucy and I were inspired so much by the illustrations, we decided to make some apple trees collages! It really required very little supplies~ old scrapbooking paper, scissors, glue, hole punches and blank paper (we decided to use our art sketchbooks).
We got some brown patterned paper to cut out the tree trunk and branches.
Lucy loved how one of the pieces looked so similar to the one in the book.
After gluing the tree onto our paper, we cut out the leaves. We used a large circular punch and green patterned paper. I kept the circles whole, but Lucy wanted to cut them in the shapes of leaves. Then, we glued them onto our tree!
And we topped off our designs with some red apples which were just red circles cut with a regular hole punch.
A fun and easy little craft to go with an absolutely wonderful book!
