Autumn Leaves Sun Catcher Craft

Autumn has well and truly hit my little corner of the UK. The mornings are dark and misty, the nursery run is a bit soggy and the leaves have started to change colour.

I really, really love Autumn. I love the smells, the cosy nights in, the knitwear, the boots (just autumn fashion in general) and, of course, the candles. It’s probably my favourite season – bonus points for Halloween falling slap bang in the middle of it; need I say more? Autumn is the season for crafting! For getting creative with beautiful colours, getting dark and spooky for Halloween and enjoying some really fun activities.

This sun catcher craft uses tissue paper inspired by the beautiful colours of autumn leaves, so it’s time to raid the craft box!

  1. Cut up tissue paper into smallish squares. This is the perfect opportunity to practice scissor skills with your child. Tearing the tissue paper also works well if your child is too young to use scissors.
  2. Peel the paper from the contact paper and secure to a surface using masking tape.
  3. Go mad decorating and sticking the tissue paper down!
  4. Once you’ve finished sticking, turn the contact paper over. Using a marker pen, draw the outline of some autumn leaves.
  5. Cut out and stick to the nearest window or patio door! (If some contact Paper has been left uncovered by tissue paper, then it may stick without any added adhesive; if not, I used glu-dots to hold ours in place.
