Today, I’m excited to be partnering with OOLY to create some happy, because I have fallen in love with so many of their products! Nothing ignites my creativity like a bunch of shiny, new, colorful art supplies!
The wall-hanging project I want to share with you today takes its inspiration from OOLY’s, The Paper Works Sketchbook. Ordinarily, I use my sketchbooks at home for…well, sketching! But this sketchbook is unique in that it contains four different types of paper: white, black, graph, AND kraft. Every page is perforated, so I pulled out one of each and had fun creating a project that utilizes them all. The best part of this project is adding color, pattern, and texture to each of these high-quality papers.
By layering in colorful, beachy patterns with Oil Pastel Twisty Stix and Chalk-O-Rama chalk crayons, as well as adding bits of trim and hand-cut fringe, you will be able to create a mock textile worthy of hanging on your wall!
I just love the Bohemian vibe of this project, with its free-spirited combination of multiple designs and trims! Plus,wall-hangings are super trendy right now! (My students and I just completed this fun one a few weeks ago.)
Hop over to OOLY’s site for complete instructions on how you and your kids can make this wall-hanging project!
***If you try this Project Artwork at home, don’t forget to share a photo of your wall-hanging by tagging OOLY and projectartworkathome with #createyourhappy.***
Project Ages: I recommend this for 1st grade and up, however younger children could do this with assistance.
Project Timeframe: Anywhere from 45 minutes to one hour, but could go much longer if your child is older and wants to spend longer on the patterns.
