These canvas tree art crafts are so fun for kids. Create tree art to hang on the walls with beautiful leaves made using thumbprints, paper, seeds, and more. You will need to help a little too, especially for the little ones.


  • Canvas
  • Branch
  • Anything you want to decorate your tree with ie. buttons, seeds, paint, scrapbook paper, or fabric
  • Hot glue and school glue
  • Scissors
  • Food dye (optional – for seeds)


Attach the branches to the canvas using hot glue.

Items to decorate such as seeds, paper, and buttons can be attached using regular school glue to make it easier for kids.

Paint your thumb with fall colors to make the thumbprint trees.

Dye seeds using food dye and set them aside to dry before attaching them to the tree. This is a great way to use dried pumpkin seeds from pumpkin carving.
