We all know how fun bubble wrap is to pop, but with this fall craft idea you can use it to paint, too!

Painting is always fun, but painting with bubble wrap is even better! That’s why we love this colourful corn wreath idea by Melissa of 1 Pure Heart.

She and her kids used bubble wrap dipped in different colours to paint over construction paper and then cut the paper into corncob-like shapes—a perfect fall-themed wreath to decorate their front door.

A word of caution before you begin though: don’t get too carried away popping the bubble wrap before you get the chance to use it!

What you’ll need:

  • White and green construction paper
  • Yellow, orange, red and brown paint
  • Bubble wrap
  • Twine
  • Cardboard
