October Art Board


This is our October Harvest board. Here's how I made it:

For the rows of corn, I scrunched up green butcher paper into long strips, then added smaller scrunched up pieces to hold the corn. The corn was made with yellow handprints on white or yellow paper. Make sure to mix the paint with plenty of glue so that the corn kernels will stick.

For the spiderwebs, I drew a web design with glue, then sprinkled silver glitter over it. The webs can also be made by drawing a web design with glue on wax paper, also sprinkled with glitter. Once dry, the web comes right off the wax paper and can be used anywhere.

The scarecrows were both hand-drawn by copying an image I found on google images.

And, voila, our October masterpiece is complete.
