Instruct students to:

  1. Draw a faint design on construction paper.
  2. Use a pushpin or straight pin to poke holes in the paper along the lines.
  3. Trim and hang your art in a window, and let the sun shine through the lacy designs.


  • Start small, with a shape created with 1/4 sheet of construction paper.
  • Create shapes that are seasonal.
  • Back with coordinating color.
