Easy Craft Project - Make a Tree Picture with Coffee Filters

Are you looking for an easy craft project to do with your kids?  Here is a project my daughter and I did.  We made a picture of a tree using coffee filters.  This craft project is easy, simple, cheap, and fun.

Supplies You Will Need:

  • 3 Coffee Filters 
  • 2 Sheets of Construction Paper (1 Brown)
  • Glue
  • Scissors 
  • Crayons


Step #1:  We made a small picture on standard size construction paper.  You can make a lager one as well.  For the smaller size, we cut the bottoms of the coffee filters out.  So we were left with the round bottom.

Step #2:  Color the coffee filters.  You can use green or a collection of green, red, brown, and orange for fall colors.

Step #3:  Cut out a tree trunk on brown construction paper.  If your child is good with scissors, just trace the outline for them and let them do the cutting.

Step #4:  Glue the tree truck to the full sheet of construction paper (the background).

Step #5:  Glue each of the colored coffee filters to the page (on top of the tree truck).

Above was a picture of our final product.  Below is a picture of a larger tree we also made the same way.  We just used full coffee filters and a large sheet of construction paper.

Doing craft projects with your child is a fun activity that is great for whenever, especially a rainy day.  What is nice about this preschool craft project or kindergarten craft project is that most parents already have all the needed supplies at home!
