Week 10: Paper plate snowmen
I'm a bit late posting these, but December can be a real bear with spare time. We had three weeks of art during the Christmas season, and there are so many good holiday projects out there, but I usually try to do some ornaments and cards. This projects is not really either, but is a lot of fun and easy as pie...plate, that is.
I should probably write a book on art projects made from paper plates (or find the books that undoubtedly have already been written!)
This project uses three plain white paper plates. I used a large and two smaller ones. I attached them with the metal brads that look like thumbtacks with wings. Then it is up to the student to make a hat, scarf, boots, face and buttons out of whatever you have on hand: paper, twigs, pipe cleaners, sequins, puffballs, etc.
Each one turns out different and really cute.
For those who finished early, I showed them the classic paper plate dove from my childhood.
