Creating a collage allows you to make a striking craft project without any formal skills or training: All you need to know how to do is cut and paste. A garden collage is an inventive way to ensure that you have flowers displayed in your room no matter what the season. When it comes to making a garden collage, you can choose from a variety of themes.

Famous Flowers

Use the paintings of artists who have created masterpieces with flowers as the subject. You can create a garden of images using the work of Georgia O'Keefe, Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Shirley Novak and Carol Rowan, among others. To begin this project, make colour copies from an art book that showcases the work of these artists with a floral focus. Once you make copies, cut the flowers out in any fashion, arranging them until you create a garden that suits your fancy. Once the images are in the ideal positions, paste them in place.

Famous Gardens

This collage entails selecting choice colour photographs of famous gardens from around the world, all trimmed in such a way that together, they make up one large garden. The collage can give viewers of the art a glimpse of famous gardens around the world. To start, make colour copies of photographs of gardens such as the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Rikugien Gardens in Tokyo, The Claude Monet Gardens in Giverny and the Exbury Gardens in New Forest, England, among many others. Alternatively, if you have colour postcards, cut images of the garden, without the need to make copies. Arrange the photos of each garden strategically until your canvas looks like it displays one enormous, striking garden. At that time, secure all the images in place with glue.

Single Color Garden

A single colour garden collage can be a gift to a gardener who has one favourite colour or to match a room that has one particular colour in its decor. To start, select a colour such as purple, and flip through magazines, cutting out flowers only in that colour. Cut out pictures of real, fake or even illustrations of flowers in the selected colour. To complete this type of collage, gather several magazines from a wide selection. Once you've cut out all your flowers, arrange then on the canvas so they look like one large garden of flowers in that colour. Secure pictures with glue if If satisfied with the result.
