As you may remember, a few months ago we made paper mache bowls, which the kids used to store various trinkets and change. Well, as awesome as these bowls were, they've somewhat fallen apart in recent months (accidentally stepping on them didn't help matters). So, we decided to make something new to hold all of our junk.
Here's the scoop:
Materials: Small cardboard container (we used tomato boxes from Trader Joes, shoeboxes would also work), lots of stickers, old magazines, glue, and modge podge (optional)
1. Go through all your old art supplies - look for old magazines, long forgotten stickers, and other things that beg to be used.
2. Glue or stick things to your bowl. Be creative.
3. Modge Podge over the finished project - to give it a little gloss and to make sure everything stays attached.
4. Let dry overnight.
5. Use your bowl to store: hairclips, pocket change, knick knacks, etc.
