We took this piece of wood, found on the street and created art worthy of hanging on the wall.


wood or other flat thick material

fabric scraps

paper (we cut out iron on letters for the word)




ornaments/ keychains/ jewelry


Cut scraps of fabric into triangles and squares.

Glue on to board and arrange however you want, you will most likely overlap a bit.

Allow about 10 minutes for the fabric to dry, then glue on your word, beads and other decorations.

Let dry.

I think I had more fun than the kids with this one! All of the work took about 30 minutes.

3-D Painting

We made this 3-D piece of work with some glue and water color!
Cardboard (we cut up a cereal box)
regular Glue
Watercolor Paint

Draw a picture with a pencil, crayon, or pen

Trace the picture with glue

Let Dry!

After about 10-20 minutes you can paint over the glue with different colors.

This creates a cool 3-D effect the kids will love!
