I have made Paper Lamps available for you. I wanted the pattern to be shared along with this post but unfortunately it is possible only after sometimes.

There are so many things that you can do it from paper. Instead of throwing away the papers that is not required you can recycle them by bringing-in creativity.

I have used handmade paper and embellishment made from form. Hope you would like it.

Thermocol art - Photoframe

Paper Mache Ver1.2 - Tutorial

After my first mache bird, I was so impressed that i thought of making another one and I named it as bumble bee.

Actually I tried to show the process/ tutorial here to give you an idea of making paper mache. It is as simple as any other craft but the main drawback according to me is it takes time to get mache dried. It takes minimum of 2days to dry so the process is time consuming.

Tissue Paper / News paper (1 toilet roll or as per your requirement how fat you want to make)
Thick paper / Card board for Shape
Ceramic Powder - 1/2kg
Adhersive Glue ( I have used Fevicol)
Colors to paint

Soak tissue paper overnight. Drain all water properly. I took small bucket and added ceramic power and adhersive glue and mix it thoroughly until it becomes dough. You can also use blender to mix it well.

Take the shape, I have bumble bee shape board and start applying on it until full bee if formed. Keep it for drying for 2days. After it dries use vibrant colors and paint as you love to.

My final bee is ready!
Enjoy and have great weekend!!!!!!!!!!!
