Fall Tree Bubble Wrap Fingerpainting Craft

This is a fabulous looking Fall tree fingerpainting craft. It's one of a set of 4, one for each season. It uses one of my favorite techniques, using bubble wrap to paint the leaves.


  • white card stock or thick paper
  • paints
  • paint brushes
  • brown construction paper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • bubble wrap
  • black marker

  1. Beforehand, trace an cut out a simple tree shape. If you plan to make 4 of these crafts, make 4 trees with the same template. Or trace a hand print for the tree.
  2. Use brushes or fingers to paint on a blue sky and green grass. Use a little white to make the colors brighter and give the illusion of clouds. Allow to dry.
  3. Glue the tree into your fall scene.
  4. Cut three pieces of bubble wrap, about the same size as the top of the tree.
  5. Paint the bubble wrap in red, orange, and yellow.
  6. Press onto the tree one by one to make the leaves.
  7. Use finger and thumb prints to make the leaves on the ground.
  8. Use black thumb prints to make the hedgehogs in the grass.
  9. After dry, use a marker to the sppines and a spot of white for the hedgehogs eyes or use small eye stickers.
