Materials:

  • Aleene’s Super Thick Tacky Glue
  • Car pattern of your choice
  • Pencil
  • Nuts, bolts, washers, mesh, pop can tabs and miscellaneous materials to represent various shapes for your car
  • Toothpick (to apply glue)
  • Frame
  • Paper, matboard or felt for backing

Instructions:

  1. Choose favorite car pattern, enlarge to fit desired size and print onto white paper. Place pattern on background paper and lightly trace around pattern to create guide lines for gluing. Lay items onto paper to fit within the pattern lines. Rearrange as necessary until you have the exact patterning you want to represent your car.

  2. Apply fine line of glue to paper for smaller items such as this piece of ball chain that I am gluing in place to represent the top of the car.
