Pastel and Glue Pumpkin

Students can create picture of a pumpkin using glue and pastels.


You can create cool works of art using glue as your drawing medium. The end result is a unique drawing that looks like a stained glass window.

What You Need:

  • black (or other dark) construction paper
  • white glue
  • a pencil
  • oil (or chalk) pastels or crayons

What You Do:

Gather your materials.

Using pencil, draw a picture on construction paper.

The picture can be of anything you wish — just remember to keep it simple.

In this case, we drew a pumpkin for Halloween with a checkerboard tablecloth.

Next, trace over your pencil lines using white glue squeezed from a glue bottle. The thicker the better!

Then, put the drawing in a safe place to dry for anywhere from 12 to 24 hours.

After the glue is dry, fill in the areas created by the glue lines using either chalk or oil pastel.
