Fabric Collage

Materials

  • Scissors, tweezers, liquid glue
  • 3 dishes
  • Old paintbrush to spread glue
  • Scraps of fabric that match your room colors or favorite team
  • Yarn, string, or ribbon
  • Something to do collage on, like an old tabletop, bed headboard, frame, or just a cardboard box
  • Liquid acrylic
Directions
  1. With scissors, cut up the fabric into small pieces and divide them into three dishes of pale, medium, and dark tones.
  2. Draw the shape you will be filling in (tropical fish, parrots, animals, and free designs work well).
  3. First, paint a small area with glue, then put the fabric pieces on a little bit at a time.
  4. You may want to rub over the top of the fabric with a piece of clean rag to make sure it is flat.
  5. Use the yarn, string, or ribbon for added decoration.
  6. When your project is completely dry you may wish to coat it with liquid acrylic.
