I saw these bowl on Pinterest (big surprise, huh?) and something about the project really appealed to me. I think it’s the recycling of fabric scraps- which I happen to have in droves, perhaps a project the teens might enjoy? and I love any excuse to play with paper mache.
This is as far as we’ve gotten- paper mache bowl shapes have been made (using balloons and flour/water for glue) and now we are in the sorting-of-fabric-scraps step. It’s kind of like making a quilt, lots of not-very-hard steps but a very time consuming, labor intensive process. So put Pandora on your favorite channel, gather up the troops and make it a party! We’ve got some Halloween theme ideas, polka dots, vintage fabric, Christmas. Show you soon!
