I had to do a quick post of this art project we did the other day in meri cherry art class (inspired by the easy shape collages I saw on Art Bar) because it was soooo cute and the girls were just happy as could be with the whole process and result. We made vintage collages on contact paper and hung them with vintage hangers and I just melted all over the place. Aren’t they cool?! They couldn’t be easier too. A toddler can make these and they would still come out great. Here is the 3 step process.

a piece of cardboard (ours were about 8×10)
vintage paper cutouts or cutouts of your favorite characters (you can print them out or cut up a cheap book from the thrift store or something along those lines)
vintage wood hanger (keep your eyes peeled at your next thrift store or flea market visit and if you can’t find one, your local home store will work fine too : )
Wrap white contact paper sticky side up onto a piece of cardboard. We used duct tape on the back to hold the contact paper down.
Pick pieces of tissue paper and vintage paper cut outs and just press it on the contact paper, which will act like glue. I got really lucky and scored a huge box of vintage paper doll cutouts at the Rose Bowl Flea Market a few months ago and finally got them out for class. These girls were so into them! They made up all these stories about each one as they placed their papers on their boards.
Hang the board from a vintage wood hanger and bam, you’ve got this awesome wall hanging collage. Seriously, I could make these all day.
