  • Decorative Paper (Christmas Wrap)
  • Celco Circle Template
  • National Art Materials Round Canvas Panels
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler

How to do it

  1. Select a circle of your choice from the circle template.
  2. Using your selected circle template, trace a circle onto the decorative paper. For our project, we used a 10 inch round canvas panel and needed to cut out 120 x 3.5 cm circles. Tip: we layered a few pieces of decorative paper together and cut the circle out at the same time.
  3. Optional step if you are using multiple colours: lay out your scales to ensure you have the desired colour scheme and effect you want.
  4. Glue down the scales starting from the bottom of the canvas. 
    Tip: pinch the scale and glue down on the board to create a 3D effect.
