It's made up of three layers and has lots of texture to it.
- basket coffee filters
- tempera disk paint in Fall colors
- brown kraft paper
- wax paper
- scraps of corrugated cardboard
- black acrylic or liquid tempera paint (poster paint)
You can always add a touch more color or water here and there if they are painting too dry.
Set aside to dry. You can hang them up to dry faster.
While the filters are drying take a piece of brown kraft paper the size you want the final piece to be. Crumple it up again and again.
Take a piece of newspaper and put it on your work space. Then put down the crumpled kraft paper that you have smoothed out. Add a piece of wax paper.
Add another sheet of newspaper and iron on med heat until the wax transfers to the kraft paper.
When your filters are dry cut out some nice tree shapes.
Nice thing about corrugated cardboard is you can manipulate it a bit. Bending it and twisting it.
Give the kids a piece of paper to experiment with making prints.
Use black acrylic or liquid tempera.
Add a few prints at the bottom for the grass.
That's it. Easy peasy!

Which means that Gwen wins "The Complete Guide to Felting" by Ruth Lane. Gwen sent me this email:
"I love this project and many of the other projects you do. Giving child friendly instructions is a gift to all of the art educators who read your blog. Felting has been a great addition to our art program and I think some of my students would love some new project ideas.
