Fabulous Fall Collage!

Kids Art:  Make a fabulous fall collage using items from nature:

Lately I’ve been gathering loads of fall crafts ideas while pouring over all my favourite blogs and facebook pages, and I’ve combined a couple of great activities to come up with this idea for a fabulous fall collage.

For the Hooligans’ craft today, I combined a couple of ideas that I’ve seen recently.   I got the awesome idea for paint smooshing from Moments of Mommyhood’s “no-mess finger-painting” and paired it with Sun Hats & Wellie Boots’ idea for 3D Autumn collages.

I think the photos are pretty much self-explanatory, but in case you’re wondering, we used acrylic craft paints for the smooshing.  Also, we used plastic wrap, but I realized afterwards that we were supposed to use WAXED PAPER.  We’ll go with the waxed paper next time for sure, as the plastic wrap moved around a bit when we were smooshing.

How pretty is this?!  I’m thinking it would look great with a twig frame around it.  We may just have to try that next. :)

How are you celebrating fall at your house?

Yours in play, Jackie from Happy Hooligans
