Papier-Mâché Bracelet

Materials

  • Cardboard tube or baby bottle
  • Scissors
  • Papier-mâché paste
  • Newsprint or other paper
  • Colored tissue paper or paint

Directions

  1. For this project you will need a cardboard tube large enough in diameter to slip over your child's hand.
  2. Cut one- or two-inch pieces of the tube and cover them with layers of paper and paste.
  3. Finish with brightly colored strips of tissue paper or paint.
  4. Or, instead of using a cardboard tube, use a bottle with the appropriate diameter (baby bottles work well).
  5. Grease or powder the bottle, then start with molding a layer of newsprint around the bottle.
  6. Add a layer of heavier construction paper for strength, then add an additional six layers of papier-mâché
  7. Remove the bracelet from the bottle and finish with paint or strips of tissue paper.
