Gather all supplies. Download and print the Bubble Wrap Harvest Corn pattern sheet onto plain paper. Place the pattern sheet under the bubble wrap. Basecoat the bubble wrap with a bright yellow acrylic craft paint. Add the other colors of acrylic craft paint in random patches all over the bubble wrap. Set aside to dry.
Cut out corn shape from pattern sheet and trace onto yellow cardstock three times. Cut out the three corn shapes with scissors. Once dry, flip painted bubble wrap over and trace corn pattern three times, and then cut out with scissors.
Attach the three painted bubble wrap corn shapes to the three yellow cardstock corn shapes with an adhesive runner. Layer the three pieces of harvest corn in a group and secure at the top with staples from an office stapler. You can use liquid craft glue for this step, but you will have to wait for it to dry. A glue stick will not work on the plastic bubble wrap.
Cut the bottom and any handles from the brown paper bag with scissors. Tear the brown paper bag pieces into strips approximately 3” wide. Rip a few longer sections and a few shorter sections to become the corn husks. Dry fit them on your work surface to make sure you have enough.
Attach the long sections of brown paper bag corn husks to the back of the harvest corn using an adhesive runner. Accent the front of the harvest corn with the short sections of brown paper bag corn husks.
Measure and cut three lengths of natural jute twine 24” long. Tie around the brown paper bag corn husks and finish with a bow. Trim ends of bow with scissors, if necessary.
Create this Recycled Bubble Wrap Harvest Corn craft to work on shapes, cutting, color and counting with the kiddos. Make learning FUN!
