Don’t let last year’s Hanukkah cards go to waste—repurpose them into a one-of-a-kind collage that’s the perfect holiday gift!
- Cut last year’s Hanukkah cards or wrapping paper into small pieces of various shapes and sizes.
- Cover a piece of paper with a thin layer of Mod Podge, and begin placing the scraps randomly onto it.
- Layer the pieces to create a dynamic pattern of colors and elements from the cards. As you are layering scraps, alternate thin layers of Mod Podge over top to seal the pieces in place.
- The Mod Podge will dry clear, but it helps to dampen a paper towel and blot the collage to remove the excess.
- Cover the entire base so that no color shows through the scraps, but don’t be afraid to add many layers. Allow the collage to dry for at least one hour.
- While the collage is drying, fold the construction paper in half and sketch a shape onto it (either freehand or using a stencil). Cut out the shape to reveal a symmetrical silhouette in the design of your choice.
- Place your cut-out silhouette over the collage and secure using the Mod Podge. Once dry, frame your collage or give to a loved one as a holiday card.
