The vacations are round the corner and there needs to be some excitement every day. One imaginative way out is to make beautiful things out of waste material.

The things you need:

  1. An old broomstick
  2. Adhesive
  3. Blade
  4. Thermocol sheet
  5. Black chart paper
  6. Scissors
  7. Pencil, eraser, ruler and sharpener

Step 1: Stick the black chart paper on the thermocol sheet.

Step 2: Draw an object or a landscape.

Step 3: Slit the end of the broomsticks. Cut them into desired lengths and paste them on the picture, close to each other. See the lovely golden, ripple-like effect you have succeeded in creating.

If you wish to paint the picture, go ahead.
