An interesting version of crafts made from natural materials can be made using a ripened pumpkin or its seeds. An unusual and very colorful application “Tree” can be obtained from the seeds.

To create this craft, all ripe seeds are removed from the pumpkin and dried well. After that, they are painted with watercolor, acrylic, food colors or gouache in different shades of "autumn colors", which can be seen on the foliage of trees at this time of year. You can paint the seeds with a brush, or you can simply immerse them in a container filled with dye,hold it a little and then dry it on a sheet of paper or a piece of cloth.

Now we are armed with a brush and glue PVA and we proceed to gluing bright leaves. You can use liquid clerical glue. If the glue is in a tube with a narrow spout, you will not need a brush.

We turn the painted pumpkin seeds into leaves. One by one we grease them with glue, using a brush, and fix them on one of the branches of the tree. We alternate the leaves of different colors to make the tree more vivid and expressive.
