My first posted project! A paper mache tree.

I know it isn't as great as the projects on here, but I'm proud of it anyway!


The trunk was made by taping together 2 toilet paper rolls then paper mache-ing them. The roots are rolled-up paper towels that were glued to the trunk then paper mache'd.


The top is crumpled paper towels that were taped together then paper mache'd.

 Then I paper mache'd the two parts with different colors, painted them (I used the colored paper because I only had watercolors and they would'nt paint well), covered them in a glue gloss & stuck them together.
(close-up!)

Thanks for looking! Smiley (I'm not sure if the pics came through or not. They don't appear in the preview, but I have more than 10 posts Undecided)

Very cute!

I was able to fix the code for you, make sure you are selecting the code that ends in .jpg and it will work! After you click on the picture, underneath it is a box with code and the top one says: "Copy and paste this into your Craftster post."

There is a thin, semantic line separating weird and beautiful. And that line is covered in jellyfish. - Welcome to Night Vale
