For a father's day project, I'm trying to make a bunch of grapes. I thought about gluing something like cotton balls to construction paper, but how would I make them purple (or green) without using something like paint? That wouldn't work. It would have to be something dry. What about something grape-like that isn't fuzzy like cotton is?

or maybe purple construction paper cut into circles/ovals (you could even use black or gray crayons to add shadows if you would like)?

I've heard some people spray white cotton balls to make them slightly moist and then shake them in a baggy of powdered tempera paint. But there again, you'd need the powdered paint.

I really like the tissue paper idea!
