Awhile ago I had a day when I thought that I wanted to forget about the normal everyday things to do and just do something fun, so I decided to be creative. I couldn’t decide what to do, but I knew it needed to be completely outside of the box, so paper mache seemed like a good choice.
I looked around the house until I found enough “items” to use as a base for the paper mache. Styrofoam balls, tubes from paper rolls (like register tape), cardboard, and twigs from outside were the items that I used.
I love the way that birds turned out. They’re whimsical, colorful, fun, and they make me happy.
I plan to spend more time with paper mache and some different critters in the near future.
