Jane

Beautiful. Now they are made and on display, are the children back in the cupboard?

Angela

What a great idea! We usually use a blown up ballon, but the cling wrap bowl is a great idea especially for my 2 year old. Thanks!

mrspilkington

hey -- great idea! but what if one has already locked oneself in the cupboard?
have a wonderful weekend.

Cool! I never knew how to do paper mache, but I think I could do this. Of course, I wouldn't mind locking myself in a cupboard if it meant I could get a nap...

lisa

i used to make paper mache bowls!! the title of this post made me crack up.

Blair

You give the best tutorials. I just love this idea, maybe I'll get my kids out of the cupboard and try it!

debs

lovely colors, i suppose these are their bowls for the gruel?! :o)

Kim

Lovely...this might just be worth letting him out of the cupboard for!

raspberryfairy

I think we will make the pink one!!

Regina

Ha Ha!! I'm having a "lock your kids in the cupboard" kind of day, so this is good timing!

This is a wonderful idea. So simple and pretty! It would have been good for the day the kids decided to tear apart a whole box of tissue!ha ha!

Happy weekend to you!

Gina

Very cute! I love the pressed flowers idea.

Carrie

Wow - that's amazing! But I'd really rather lock my kids in the closet.

Sarah Jane

Thank you for the great idea...I don't know if I'll use it as an 'alternative' but will definitely get them (the little darlings) to try their hands at it. The bowls are beautiful!

vegasandvenice

Oh these came out so cute! Beautiful and brilliant (you and the bowl idea *smile*)

vicki

perfect!

Alicia P.

Excellent!

Liesl

Hmmm, I hadn't thought of the closet. But then I'd have to remove a bunch of stuff to get her into it...

Love the pink bowl! Do you seal it somehow so the glue doesn't get sticky if it gets wet?

mykonos

Wonderful!! and I love the pink!!

Kristin

That is the greatest idea! My daughter will love this. Thank you.

Adriana

Lovely! I used to make those all the time when I was younger. Don't remember them looking so pretty though... ;-)

kimc

great bowls, makes me want to go tear up some paper...they are lovely!

justjohanna

haha! i will have to save this idea for when my little guy is a bit older. for now, we're at the stage where he can annoy the snot out of me, but he can only be entertained with something for about 10 minutes at a time. sigh.

pav

oh my. you have a beautiful site and such beautiful things you've made. Where do you find all your beautiful fabrics (for patchwork, sewing and corsages) in the UK? I live in London and the only place I can find nice fabric is in Liberty where the prices are sky-high.

Dacia

Those turned out great!

Zoe

Those are beautiful!! I love them!!! I am going to have to try this!! Thanks for sharing.

kerrie

They look lovely but surely its still easier just to lock the children in a couboard and have a bottle of wine?

weirdbunny

They look lovely, we love paper mache in our house, lovely and sticky and messy. We just use flour and water.

Carmen

This looks like a lot of fun for a kid's project! Thanks for sharing!

Snowbear

one of my favorite art forms!
my kid likes to play in the cupboard though....
;-)

Ellen

Thanks for sharing. Beautiful.

Odile

C'est génial !!! It's great ! I think i'll try it this afternoon....
Thanks for sharing all your ideas
Odile (France)

Beth

Thanks so much for your tutorial. I think I know what we'll be doing this weekend!

AscenderRisesAbove

Wonderful technique tips and great photos for each step... Thanks for sharing!

Eve

nice nice nice!!!

Cami

I followed a link from The Crafty Crow! Beautiful work and a wonderful idea. They look like they should be in an art gallery. I can't wait to give these a try.

Alison

Great idea!!! I do have a question. Can you put a coat of poly or something similar to protect the mache? Or does the coats of glue protect it just fine?

virginia

After a while I run outta ideas for crafts, so thanks for posting this! luv the tutorial. Now, Maybe if I get my kids to do this craft, I can lock myself in the cupboard and take a nap:)
