Christmas Wonderful: Petit Collage For Kids

Petit Collage for Kids featured on Design Dazzle
Hello! I’m Holly from Life as a Thrifter, and I’m thrilled to be back to share a fun and thrifty Christmas art project for you and the kids.
If you’ve been by the blog, then you already know my obsession with thrifted frames. There’s so many possiblities…and even better, you can buy them for next to nothing!

Using adhesive spray, I glued newspaper themed wrapping paper to the front of the frame. (Note: I found this particular wrapping paper in the dollar bins at Target just a couple months ago.)

Next, I hand drew a simple tree on cardstock and cut it out. (One extra…just in case.)

I gathered up a few old magazines and cut out various sizes of strips of green. (My child is 2…if you have an older one, I’m sure they could do this step!)

Lastly, my two year old glued…and glued…and glued…


Once she finished, we glued the tree to the thrifted frame…
