Construction Paper Mountain Art

You won't believe how easy it is to make this construction paper mountain art from David Leon Morgan. This do it yourself wall art is simple enough to us for preschool art activities, but the finished result looks abstract and artistic.

Construction Paper Mountain Art


  • A glue stick
  • Sheets of construction or recycled paper, in various colors
  • A paper cutter (optional)
  • Note cards, canvas or anything else you would like to place your paper mountain (optional)


  1. First, determine what size you would like your paper mountain to be. The easiest option is to make your paper mountain the same width as the width or height of your construction paper. This paper is usually 8 1/2 x 11, so your mountain could be either size. You can also use a paper cutter to create a size paper that you want. The height of your mountain is determined by how many layers you decide to glue onto it.
  2. Once you have you determined the size, create the base layer by simply ripping the paper, making sure you are keeping the straight edge of your determined size. This will be the bottom layer of your mountain. The rips that you create is what forms the unique peaks and valleys of your mountains, so you don't need to do this perfectly. In fact, it looks better when you have a less-perfect rip.
  3. Create the second layer by ripping construction paper with the same size as your base layer, then glueing it to the back of your base layer. You can also rip paper of a different width and then use a paper cutter to create a uniform size once you have glued all of your layers together.
  4. The third layer of your mountain should be glued to the back of the previous, second layer, and the fourth layer should be glued to the back of the third. Follow this pattern for each of your layers.
  5. Once your mountain is finished, glue it to a notebook, a poster board or wherever else that you'd like.
