I decided to have the kids make Corn Cobs today for a Fall project.
I was trying to think of ways to get the kernel-y effect when I remembered the Oogie Boogie's we made.
Here are the supplies we used: 3 colors of paint, yellow & green construction paper, glue, bubble wrap, pipe cleaner, paint brush and scissors.
First, we cut the Corn Cob out of the construction paper.
I eyeball everything. You can trace and then cut if necessary.
Next, we cut a piece of bubble wrap and spread the 3 colors of paint on it like so.
Gently pat the yellow Corn part with the paint, turning it different ways, layering the colors.
Glue it all together.
Lastly, cut the pipe cleaners and stick on to the leaves for a 3D effect.
It would look really cool with raffia on it as the little stringy things.
I couldn't find the picture of it dry in my folders. *Sheesh, I really need to organize my files!*
