Pretty in pink papier mâché bracelet


Once children grow out of pre school crafts, they really like making something for themselves. Papier Mâché is really versatile and making a simple bracelet is easy to do.

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

Materials
  • Newspaper
  • Sticky tape
  • Wallpaper paste
  • Tissue paper

  • Method
  • Take two sheets of newspaper and scruch into a long line.
  • Bend around into a circle.



  • Shorten if needed to make the circle smaller.
  • Tape the ends together.



  • Rip some more newspaper into thin lengths.
  • Dip the newspaper and wrap around the circle.
  • Contine all the way around the circle until you have one layer.



  • Leave to dry until hard. This could take several hours.
  • Repeat wrapping the circle with another layer of newspaper and leave to fully dry.
  • Tear up strips of coloured tissue paper. They are much thinner than newspaper so it's easier to apply paste to the circle then lay over the tissue.



  • Once dry, repeat with another layer of tissue paper.



  • The pretty bracelet is now ready to wear. Instead of tissue paper, the bracelet could be painted with gold paint and sequins stuck on to give a jewelled effect
