Trash-to-Treasure Texture Collage

Trash-to-Treasure Texture Collage craft

Turn your leftover craft materials into projects with panache! Recycle bits from previous projects and household items into works of art.

  • 1.

    Recycled art can be made out of anything small and safe. This craft can be serious or silly, abstract or look like something you see each day. What does your recycled art say about you?

  • 2.

    Start with recycled cardboard as the base of your collage. Decorate it with True to Life Crayons, Markers, and/or Colored Pencils. Twist and turn the tri-colored tips to make different colors and interesting shaded lines.

  • 3.

    Gather your leftovers! Look around the house for materials that you can use to build your collage. Extras from craft projects, unused household items, and recycled stuff make great collage materials. What will you find in your search? Be sure to ask permission before you use anything.

  • 4.

    Add bits of True to Life color to string, fabric, or paper scraps, for example. Use glue to assemble your 3-D collage. Air-dry the glue.

    Proudly display your trash turned to treasure!
