Big Pig

Here's a photo of our pig-- Molly and James and I made this big picture (it's about 2 1/2 feet by 3 1/2 feet), with recycled plastic lids. See, there is a reason to save odd materials like plastic lids . . . ! These came off a variety of milk jugs, buttermilk, kefir, etc. It took awhile to collect them, but then we had a big bunch of lids-- and they worked great for mosaic materials. We arranged the lids first, within a pencil sketched pig shape (on a large matboard lying flat). Then one at a time, we put glue along the lids' circular edges and pushed them on. The pig's tail is made of felt.
