Sprinkle confetti dots on your picture.

This confetti picture craft is similar to pointillism except instead of painting the dots, you're using colored paper dots to create your picture.

What You'll Need:

  • Hole punch
  • Assorted colors of construction paper
  • Small dishes or containers (optional)
  • Pencil
  • Craft glue
  • Heavyweight paper

How to Make a Confetti Picture:

Step 1: Punch out dots from different colors of construction paper to make confetti dots. If you want, keep the colors separate in small dishes or containers.

Step 2: Draw a picture, such as a bouquet of flowers, on a piece of paper. Fill in a section of the picture with glue, and sprinkle one color of confetti dots over the glue.

Step 3: Let the glue dry, then shake the paper to remove the excess dots.

Continue coloring your picture with more dots. If you want to be more precise, glue single dots in place, one by one, to "paint" your picture.
