NAIDOC Week Inspired Craft - Australia Flora Artworks

Download Activity Guide
The Australian bush is full of beautiful colours and textures that are perfect for being explored through collage and painting.
  • Step 1 To create the look of the bottlebrush, use chenille stems dipped in paint and then pressed onto the page. Paint in the leaves with a paint brush, add texture with pom poms and finish it off with red glitter glue for a touch of sparkle.
  • Step 2 Chenille stems can be used again to create the look of a Banksia, but this time press the chenille stems harder onto the page and move them side to side. Glue chenille stems to your design to create texture and finish off with green glitter glue for a touch of sparkle.
  • Step 3 Pom poms are great for creating the Wattle look. Dip a pom pom in paint and press it onto the page in bunches. Paint in the leaves and then use the scrunch art technique with small pieces of tissue paper to create texture. Finish off with some gold glitter glue for a touch of sparkle.
  • Step 4 Paint and tissue paper are perfect for creating beautiful, smooth blue gums. Paint in the shapes of the tree trunks first and then tear strips of tissue paper, sticking them down into the wet paint. Use blue glitter glue to add a touch of sparkle and texture to your design by drawing in some trunk details.   Once your artworks are complete, paint in the name of each of the plants you have researched and created.This activity is all about experimenting so get out all of your materials and start exploring!
