Nature Collage

Explore a natural environment and gather a bundle of natural materials to make a garden collage.

What you will need:

  • Flower petals 
  • Leaves 
  • Sand 
  • Small pebbles 
  • Seeds 
  • Grass 
  • Paperbark/paper 
  • Glue 

Take these steps:

Spend some time on a bushwalk or simply in your own backyard collecting the materials you want to use for your nature collage.

If you want the collage to last longer than a few days, I suggest pressing and drying the leave and petals beforehand in order to preserve them a bit better. Otherwise you can use fresh vegetation, but remember that it will start to fade. Perhaps that’s part of the fun!

Draw the outline of a natural object- a tree, a flower, a seascape or even a fairy on a piece of paper.

Brush a generous layer of glue onto the entire outline and begin placing your natural treasures here and there to fill out your collage.

When everything is in place, gently brush another layer of glue on top of the entire collage and let it dry.
