The coordinating samples in a wallpaper samples book make this project easy. There are so many beautiful wallpapers and the stores with discontinued sample books are usually happy to give schools the books. There are usually a number of pages in a book that coordinate, so the collage can be unique even if more than one student uses pages out of the same book. I used hearts in my collage, but many different shapes can be used. One full page from the book is used for the background. Tacky glue works best to hold the pieces. This project, “Wallpaper Collage,” is in the 6th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
