How did yours turn out?


  1. Boy did my mind take a left turn I saw this project. I used it as a way to mark food for a potluck or large gathering to tell guests which dishes were met their dietary restrictions. Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free, ect. I used plaster of pairs base made in small paper cup 3oz or 5oz with the same wire in it then made pretty with tissue, or wrapping paper as easy way to change it’s look. They are fun and easy take off on this project.

    I would seal the back or else they will fall apart in the water.

  3. This is cute but it’s gonna be messy if its raining a lot. Because paper and glue

    • I’ve used outdoor polyurethane on paper Mache and it holds up good, but it does yellow after time. For a seasonal project like this, it would be good to use.
