Necklace made with paper mache pulp beads


Papier Mâché isn't just about strips of paper but can also be made into a pulp for modelling and the end results are lightweight. It can be a little fiddly but once you get the hang of it you could try making a beaded necklace. This would be fun for dressing up or as a Mother's Day present.

Time: 45 minutes plus overnight soaking and then overnight drying.
Age: Over 10's
Level: Hard (but not too hard)

Materials
Newspaper
Water
Wallpaper paste
Knitting needle
Acrylic paint
Needle
Ribbon

Method
Rip up some newspaper and put in a large container.
Fill the container with water and leave to soak overnight. This will soften up the newspaper.

Drain the water and then start to knead and break the newspaper apart with your fingers. The idea is to break down the fibres of the newspaper, turning it into a pulp.
Add a large dollop of wallpaper paste and mix thoroughly.
Keep adding wallpaper paste until you get a good modelling consistency.

Form balls from the pulp to make beads.
Use a knitting needle to pierce a hole all the way through the beads.

Leave to dry overnight.
Paint the papier mâché beads.
Thread the ribbon through a needle and then through each bead.

You could also try making a pendant shape to hang in the middle.
