Oak Tree Art

This is a really fun, 3 dimensional art project using mostly natural materials.  We have an Oak tree at our school so gathering the acorns was easy!  We put them in our dehydrator overnight to dry them out.
I got the oak leaf punch at Michaels.  The trunks (thicker pieces of wood) and the branches (the thinner pieces) I gathered off the playground with the kids.

They first cut the grass by making "snips" in the green paper.
Then they use tacky glue to shape their tree.  I had them lay the trunk and the branches out first then glue it on the cardboard backing.
Add the acorns (with tacky glue) and the leaves (regular school glue works for this)

These look very cute hung up in our classroom!
