Paper Mache

Last year, I had the excellent idea of making some things from the game Plants vs Zombies to put in my yard for Halloween.  Because of the timing, I only had a chance to make a few and I want to do a lot more for this year.  (I had intended to do it much quicker with styrofoam, but oh my word, styrofoam is insanely expensive!!  Seriously...go look up how expensive styrofoam balls are.  It's insane.)

I guess I had to recover a bit from my Christmas mache project....
 
 (yes, he really is over five feet tall)

 ...but I am finally working on mache again.  This is my squash.  I think he is ridiculously cute.  I wish you could see his expression better in the photos.  I had intended to take a picture pre-mache, where you could see it easier, but then I forgot.


I also have a *not-really-secret* mache, started way back in November, that I am working on... *whistling whistling* ...

Love the Minecraft figure - that is brilliant. Looking forward to seeing the paper mache sculpture come to life!

Didn't you get all those styrafoam balls for 2 cents or something like that?

Are you making the pea shooter?? How FUN!!

Thanks! :D

Well, I did get those...which is why they were so spectacular. But anything bigger than two inches...you have to take out a loan to afford more than a couple...
