Hi folks! Today I want to share 3 simple and beautiful DIY art pieces you can make at home, at school, or work, by yourself or with your kids through a picture tutorial! I choose a bear outline for my photos, but you can choose any outline that speaks to you, whether animal or object. ♥ ♥ ♥
Bear in the Shredder
1. Get a few magazine or newspaper sheets and cut them into thin strips.
2. Gather your materials
I was initially going to fill in the outline, but it was a little too technical for me so I filled in the background instead. I cut out the outline of the bear and will be using the outline and the outer piece of paper in another piece below.
3. Glue strips of magazine unto sheet of paper. Fit them together in a pattern or just a mash-up.
4. Add a border if you would like or just bring the magazine strips to the edge of the paper.
I added a black sheet of construction paper to the back for added umph 🙂
I picked a page that was interesting and spoke to me and fit within the bear outline.
Added the paper left over from cutting out the above bear outline to the magazine page. Boom!
Golden Man in the Mountain
I found a picture of mountains and a small golden man. I cut him to fit the curve of the mountain and added a border.
Be happy, healthy and get your creative juices flowing!
From as early as I can remember, I have been helping my mom create crafts and art projects for her classrooms. All throughout her career she taught high school English and Math, but she now teaches an adult special education class. Instead of making mostly educational charts and dioramas, we’re now engaged in more fun and crafty projects for her students.
The latest little project of ours is to create some vases that also can double as pencil holders. She created the base, I added the final touches and viola!

Even though I still live at home, I dream about decorating my own apartment. When I eventually move out, I’m going to have so much fun decorating and bringing my dreams to life. For now, here are some bedroom ideas which I’m currently obsessed with.
