Time for fall crafts!  First up, this adorable Painted Newspaper Fall Tree. Several months ago, I started seeing tons of cute painted newspaper crafts showing up in my Pinterest feed.  Many of them are from I Heart Crafty Things, and they definitely served as inspiration for this project.  I've wanted to try the technique for a while, and a fall tree seemed like a great opportunity.  Using newspaper is such a simple and easy way to add a really unique texture effect to crafts, and I love the way the project turned out.

Paint your newspaper with watercolor.  I only painted the sections with words, but you could certainly paint all of it.  Use several shades of red, yellow, orange, and brown.  I used traditional watercolors, but you could also use liquid watercolors.  Let the newspaper dry - it doesn't take very long since the paper is so thin.

Once the newspaper has dried, cut it into small leaves.  The easiest leaf shape is a simple oval with pointy ends.  Make yourself a pile of leaves in a variety of colors.

Using brown paint, paint a tree on a sheet of cardstock.  I forgot to take a picture of the basic tree shape, but you can see it fairly well in the picture above.  You could also find a tree template online to print if you didn't want to create your own.

Then, glue the newspaper leaves around the branches using a glue stick.  Use a variety of colors, and orient them in different directions.
