Couple of days ago I made a fall maple tree out of a cardboard. I painted it with fall colors of a real maple tree. Then I thought to my self, why don’t I paint the other side of the cardboard maple tree with clean white. A different look from real fall colors maple tree to modern minimalist maple tree. I added the word fall to give a contrast, white against black. So this maple tree become two sided decoration with two different style to match your fall theme.


Things To Prepared

Things to prepared for making this upcycle diy fall maple tree are:

  • Cardboard
  • White spray paint
  • Black marker
  • Glue

How To Make

Easy steps to turn cardboard into a pretty fall maple tree decoration are:

  1. Draw different shapes of the maple tree on cardboard and then cut it. Make 7 sheets, less or more sheets depend on the thickness of the cardboard you have. Make it thick enough to be able to stand.
  2. Glue all sheets together to form a fall maple tree that able to stand. Let it dry.
  3. Since, I made this maple tree before, so I just use the other side of the glued cardboard maple tree for this project.
  4. Paint the cardboard maple tree with white spray paint. Let it dry.
  5. Draw the word Fall with black maker. Let it dry.
  6. Your diy fall maple tree is finished!
