Go on a walk and collect narrow and long leaves that are almost dry. Place on newspaper and spray paint or color with red paint. Let dry. Add a generous amount of white glue in a circle (pic 1) on the green craft paper. (Simpler solution for small children - adults or older children can add glue to the back of each leaf.) Place the leaves in a circle on the glue. Let dry. When dry glue the yellow pompoms in the middle of the circle.
