There is a large window in our dining room, at the back of our house, that Little C, and I decorate with seasonal art work. These cotton ball clouds are perfect for spring, and look beautiful when the sun shines through them. They even throw some pretty cool shadows on our dining room floor, that Little C loves to step on. Look how pretty these cotton ball clouds look in our window.
How to Create Cotton ball Clouds-
- Draw a cloud shape, or multiple cloud shapes on card stock paper.
- Cut out the clouds.
- Spread a thick layer of PVA glue on one of your clouds. We did this with ice pop sticks so I didn’t have to wash brushes.
- Have your child rip cotton balls apart
- Press the cotton balls into the glue.
- Rip, and repeat, until you have the whole cloud covered in cotton balls. Make sure you add more glue as you fill in all the spaces, so your cotton balls stay on the cloud when you hang them up later. Your clouds should look similar to this when you are finished. I like to place our art projects on a tray to dry, so they don’t stick to the table, and so I can move them if I need to use the craft table again before they dry.
- Hang the clouds up in a window to enjoy the full effect. I hung our clouds up with self adhesive Velcro. Little C loved making these. Any project where she gets to rip things up is always thoroughly enjoyed. Have fun creating these with your kids!
