If you are making a collage art with small children it will be a good idea to view the pictures to make sure the images are kid safe. Second buy some card stock with a Halloween autumn or spooky theme. Use it as the background or paint a canvas stretcher board dark or midnight blue. You can also make it more ingenious by having your own or the kids drawing on the collage art. It will convey a touch of your personality. Third is find pictures again you could find several online. Many art collage designers use Victorian photos but you may use family pictures or cutouts from books and magazines. Excellent resources for photos are thrift shops and yard sales.

As said creativity is the master of all arts. Making candy corn out of polymer clay is quite easy and it is an excellent project for just about any age group. These little polymer clay candy corns are so cute and are great for adding to all sorts of decorations and other things. You could use them to embellish things like frames magnets candles or even for adding to scrapbooking pages. Supply List: - Polymer clay (yellow orange white) - I normally use the Sculpey brand Clear acrylic sealer (optional) Instructions: 1. Warm up each color of clay by rolling and kneading it until it feels soft. Now roll each color out until it s about 1/4" thick. Now press the three rolls together with white on top orange in the middle and yellow on the bottom. 2. Find a thin sharp edge such as a thin piece of cardboard to use to slice through the clay.
Skeletons Arms The skeleton arms have string or wool running through them. With a length of string doubled in half thread the loop through 6 of the discarded peg springs and then thread the rest of the string through the loop and pull tight to that the springs are firmly connected to the end of the string. This is the skeleton s hand. Stick two peg halves back to back with the string sandwiched between. The tapered end of the pegs should point to the hand. This is the forearm. In a similar fashion glue two more peg halves so that the rounded end meets the rounded ends of the forearm. This is the skeleton s upper arm. Finally make the skeletons shoulder with two more pegs the rounded ends meeting the tapered ends of the upper arm. Cut the remaining string at the tapered ends of the skeleton s shoulder. Make two arms in this way. Use some pegs as clamps to hold the pegs until the glue has started to fix the pegs. Leave to one side to dry.
Forth attach the background to a support with clear tacky glue or a glue stick. Any flat solid surface that will not warp is acceptable. Use a board a canvas stretcher a paper mache or wooden plaque a playing card or perhaps a tag. It s also possible to produce a shadow box through an empty candy jar or shallow box. Fifth cut out pictures. Cut witch hats from black paper designed paper or newsprint. Paste image to the background and affix the witch hat. Clip words and phrases with a Halloween or spooky theme from old books or newspapers. Stick them to the collage. Sixth put some extra in your collage artwork like cut outs from classic or contemporary Halloween greeting cards worn out jewelry and buttons scrabble tiles container lids with words stamped on them fibers and beads.
