1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Help with paper mache planter pot on: March 07, 2012 01:58:21 AM
Hello,
I want to make my own swan planter and was thinking that paper mache would be good for sculpting it. But my question is about sealing it for use as a planter, with water and everything. I have not worked much with sealers and stuff like that. What do you think? Would paper mache work or is there something else? I don't really want to use clay, because if it is not the actual bake in kiln kind it breaks down outside. Please let me know!

Here is a pic of what I want to make:


Thanks everyone!
Stacy

PS any ideas for other animals?!

Here is my entry. I only spent three dollars, the two baskets and the floral foam. I used my own paint, I hope that is ok.

Here is the beg:

Hello!


I am not sure on his name at this point, but I think he is going to hold my mail.
Thanks for looking!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Bunny Mini-Mansion on: January 12, 2008 08:00:43 PM
I made this bunni mini-mansion for my friend who has two bunnies. I got the idea from this site: http://www.catsandrabbitsandmore.com/products

I have always wanted to make on of these for my cats, but they are heavy and it would have to be huge. So when I found this online I was inspired.
I used one whole box, hot glue to secure everything and some fleece for the second level. There is a door in front and one on the side, a 'top story' and a ramp to the second level. It took about two hours in all. I wanted to paint it but knew that they would chew it up, so I just made some name signs for the front.
Here are some pictures:

And the bunnies enjoying their new home:

Hope you like it and it inspires you to make a home for your small animal.
Thanks, Stacy.
