Bilbies are an animal often associated with Easter. This activity provides a great project starter for those wanting to steer away from the Easter Bunny iconography. The bilbies can be decorated with paint, paper, or drawing utensils.
How to make a Collaged Cardboard Bilby
Cut strips of the metallic cobweb paper and trace the head shape.
Fringe these strips by cutting at small intervals.
Use a glue stick to adhere the paper to the cardboard template.
- The cardboard bilbies provide a great surface for many decorating options. Collage papers, paint, draw, or use mixed media.
- Add in some Impasto and etch into it with a skewer to give a more detailed, textural look. You can paint over this! Try the Kreul Acryl markers (make sure the impasto is dry first).
