Have you ever had stuff you know you could use for an art project and they have been hanging around for years?
Well, I have my son's jeans( you know the ones that all the knees are torn out and you can only make so many cut off shorts! lol)
My art club students had various choices of recycled matter to use. Strips of old paper, painted lamination, fleece scraps, and of course old jeans.
1. Students fold 18 x 24 tagboard (painted placemats) over and draw the curve of the sail, then students draw the lines to create the loom making sure not to go to the end of the paper. Cut on the lines and start to weave.
2. Added the mast with cardboard and bottom boat. Lastly add more recycled items to finish the overall design. Boy, do my students love buttons! :)
