Autumn Window Tree

Our tissue paper window art is a great family project that can really spread the glow of autumn into your home.  This art looks like a stain glass window and it is so easy to do! 


  • tissue paper in brown, orange, yellow, and green
  • glue stick
  • scissors
  • exacto knife

For the tree give the kids the brown tissue paper and tell them to rip away to their heart's content.  Then layer the torn pieces into a tree shape. Attaching to the window with glue stick.

Trace some leaves on a folded up piece of orange tissue paper (so you can cut multiple leaves at all at once), let the little ones cut the leaves out and stick them up onto the tree and some falling down in the air. Don't forget leaves on the ground as well.

Our tree needed some friends so we added a few more things like apples,  a pumpkin, and an owl friend.

We wanted to make the leaves look more real, so we used our crayons to draw veins in the leaves and to shade our pumpkin.


To clean: Take a lemon, roll it around on a hard surface, cut the lemon in half and sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda on top. Take your lemon and wipe it over the glue spots on the window. Leave the lemon juice/baking soda solution on for a second or two until the glue breaks down. You can see the glue starting to get slimy and that is when you can easily wipe the glue off. After removing the glue, finish up with some glass cleaner to make your windows shine like new again : )
