How to Make a Recycled Tube Collage
Crafter and Art Teacher Melissa Jordan makes art out of the recycling bin as part of the Care.com Interview Series
- Paper towel tubes
- Toilet paper tubes
- Cereal box cardboard
- Tempera or acrylic paint for completion
Degree of Difficulty: Easy
Ages: 3 and up
First, cut your tubes into different sizes and shapes. You may even cut some tubes apart so they don't even resemble tubes.
Then take your cereal box cardboard as a base to glue all your tube shapes on to create a dimensional collage. Let the collage dry overnight and paint it the next day. Beautiful results!
