Tangle bowl


This is an unusual alternative to papier mâché and is suited to older children who have more nimble fingers. The delicate bowl would make a lovely present for Mother's Day. This example uses just one colour of wool but you could try different colours for different looks or co-ordinate with other accessories in a room.

Time: 20 minutes plus overnight drying
Age: Over 10's
Level: Medium

Materials
Wallpaper paste
Wool
Bowl
Oil

Method
Make up the wallpaper paste according to the packet instructions
Cut a length of wool
Lightly grease the bowl to stop the wool sticking once dry.

Turn the bowl upside down.
Dip the wool in the wall paper paste.
Drape the wool over and around the bowl multiple times and don't forget to cover the bottom.

Leave to fully dry.
Slip the wool off the bowl to reveal a delicate tangle bowl.

Great idea - especially for using up all your left over bits of wool - which I just happen to have plenty of !! Thanks from CAS
Lucy - I have made something similar but used Fabric Stiffener which you can buy from craft shops maybe a fabric shop as well. I put the wool and stiffener into a plastic bag to mix and I also wrapt the bowl in glad wrap instead of the oil only because I didn't know about the oil. Maree
Lucy - I was surprised not to be able to buy wallpaper paste in the DIY aisle in my local supermarket in Australia. I guess somewhere like Bunnings might stock it. I wonder if white PVA glue would also work?

We're definitely trying this one - just need to source some wallpaper paste.
