When those gardening catalogs start to show up in the mail, it means spring is here and summer isn’t far away! Not only are those catalogs great for finding landscaping ideas in, but you can also use the paper and pictures long after your planning is done.
Look below at how to clip your way to an easy paper garden, and create a beautiful flower collage that has everything but the bugs. Here is how to get started on a easy paper garden collage of your own!
A Fun Paper Garden Craft For Kids
The supply list is fairly simple, which is always a plus.
Begin by combing through the magazine and deciding which plants you want to add to your garden. Talk about the plants, talk about the care, the colors, the size, etc.
When you find plants you like, use your scissors to snip the picture out. Place all pictures in a pile.

Once you are done, gather your clippings and decide how you want to plan your garden. You can arrange the pictures on paper to get an idea before you glue them down. Move them around, see how they fit, and decide which ones are your favorite.
Apply some glue to the back of the clippings and start gluing them to your paper. Press and hold until secure.
You can now use crayons or colored pencils to add fencing, a trellis, or other garden decor you wish to add.
Once you have your garden collage completed, your easy paper garden collage craft for kids is ready to be displayed. Hang your garden to enjoy all season long, and never worry about a single bug! As the season goes on, you can always add more plants to your garden via your gardening catalog. It can be an ever growing project!
Gather your scissors and gardening catalog and give your own paper garden collage craft a try!
