Newspaper Papier Mache Craft

kudzukweenNovember 12, 2008

Recycle some newspaper and have fun with the kids! Take a nature walk to find some twigs, then come home and put these together and dry in the oven :D Paint them up(I love glitter)If you have to, drill a hole in the bottom of the partridge to glue it on a short branch on your twig. Use wire as a stem for the pear, and for the leaf. Wrap the wire stem to hang it from a branch. I hope you like it! Directions and photos here...

very cool! I like your dreams. I'll have to give that a try. I want to decorate my tree with all birds this year. At first I thought earths, but its hard to find them at ys anymore (little ones that kids used to get as banks etc.) So birds it is. Maybe birds and earths lol.
