The Muses and Papier Mache

 Theresa's Cottage!

 Rose's Cottage

Barb's Cottage 
 Two weeks ago the "Muses" delved into papier mache - literally!  A real mess but lots of fun.  We covered baskets with papier mache and made them into imaginative little houses to be homes for pointsettia pots for Christmas.  Today we painted them with acrylics and they are so cute.  I had to show the back of Theresa's (below) because her snowman was so cute!
The back of Theresa's!  Isn't her snowman cute?

How cute! How did you think do this?

Thanks, Rhonda. When I was teaching high school art, I had one of my classes make these one Christmas. I saw the idea in one of my craft magazines...this had to be 25 years ago. I gave away my example, so, after all this time, I tried it again - we had a great time getting our hands messy and creating!
