As y’all know, I love making crafts or projects using the bazillion brown paper grocery bags we have stockpiled in our kitchen drawer from over the years (like this One Minute Paper Bag Monster) or other recyclables lying around our house that would otherwise turn to waste (like this Repurposed Easter Grass Garden, these Rock Candy Maracas or our paper roll projects like these telescopes, binoculars and finger puppets).
- brown paper grocery bag
- construction paper
Cut off the top third of the grocery bag, which will form the top or “bust” portion of the dress.
Snip lengthwise strips of the construction paper in whatever colors suit your fancy. Tape the strips hanging vertically from the bust.
Do the same for the remaining three sides of the bag.
Embellish with cutout shapes or glue on gems and glitter. Now twirl!
LEARN! Colors, scissor cutting, pretend play.
