Fall Tissue Paper Tree Craft

Use your pencil to make the leaves for this Fall Tissue Paper Tree. It gives the tissue paper depth and is less messy and quicker than rolling in a ball and dipping in glue. This technique is especially effective for flowers and leaves and fuzzy animals.


As we know, Chlorophyll gives leaves their green colour and is so dominant it hides the other colours in the leaves. But in the fall, chlorophyll in the leaves breaks down allowing the other colours to finally shine through and show their beautiful reds, yellows, and oranges.
