Do you pile up heaps of your kid’s paintings, drawings and other artwork? Do you upcycle them in some way?
Today we share how we used several paintings created by my daughters to create this colorful and cheerful Spring accordion wreath to welcome Spring and decorate our doors!
Yesterday we played and learned with calendar numbers and tomorrow we’ll play with some junk mail as part of our 60 Days Junk Play Challenge. You can find additional info on the bottom of this post. We would love you to join in the fun!
Things we used to make our accordion Spring wreath are very basic: several sheets of vibrant paintings done by kids, piece of cardboard for the middle part, glue and marker.For this particular project, I decided to use several sheets of cling film paintings kids created earlier in the week. We didn’t take pictures of a process but if you would like to see how it’s done, you can check the instructions on Tinkerlab.
