Straw collage

Straw collage

Straws are so versatile. Drinking, building, cutting and pasting. Create this amazing straw masterpiece just for art's sake. Build a tower or border another masterpiece with colourful straws.

What you need:

  • coloured straws
  • scissors
  • PVA glue
  • paper
  • paintbrush for glue

Number of players:


Get your child to cut the straws into random lengths.

Using a paintbrush, paste the paper with PVA glue.

Arrange the straws onto the page.

Add more glue to create layers of straws.


  • PVA can take a while to dry. If choosing to build layers of straws on the page, build one at a time, allowing for a little drying time in between each layer.
  • Make a picture, create patterns, borders or just place randomly for a colourful effect.
