Crinkles & Cracks Wallhanging craft

Ready to add some pizzazz to your room? This fake-batik wallhanging has rich color and texture—yet it’s made with a recycled grocery bag!

  • 1.

    Batik is a traditional wax-resist art technique. This simple wallhanging avoids the mess of melted wax. The wallhanging may be fake, but it’s just as colorful and fun to make!

    Draw your design on a paper grocery bag with Crayola Twistables®. Apply the color in thick layers. Scrunch up the paper to make crinkles. Smooth out the paper.

    Cover your craft area with newspaper. With a brush, spread Crayola Watercolors over your drawing. The paint settles into the cracks, so the cracks show up well in your picture. Air-dry your faux-batik wallhanging.

    Cut ribbon or crepe paper streamers with Crayola Scissors and attach them to your art with a Crayola Glue Stick. To hang, punch holes in the top of the paper bag and thread with ribbon.
