Crafted this for a swap here on Craftster.  My partner has since received, which means I get to post things!

Pretty simple, really.  Took a small glass jar and paper mached the crap out of it, then built up the lid with tin foil, and paper mached that too.  Once it was dry, I painted it with acrylics.  Smiley  I wasn't crazy about it when I finished, but it's really grown a lot on me.

Full body shot:

Proof of it's ability to function as a jar:



Thanks for looking! Cheesy

That's such a wonderful idea, it's lovely!

The technique would be perfect for a snowman too, with a knitted scarf and treats in his belly Smiley

Ahh!  That would be awesome!  You could fill his tummy with marshmallows!  AGHH.  Plans for Christmas, I think so! Cheesy

What a cool idea! For some reason I always thought you had to break whatever was in paper mache but this is definitely better.
