|This example of papier mache is probably a bit of a big project for young children, but it is a great example of how durable papier mache can be.
I first made this hat over 15 years ago and between fancy dress outings for it, it is stored in our cold garage. It was a lot of fun to make, so I am really glad it has lasted this long – and it shows no sign of wearing out or coming apart yet. I go into some more detail about how to make this sort of item at my What is Papier Mache page. I enjoy both the process of making papier mache as well as the variety of things you can make, which is just about anything!
For the hats latest outing, I accompanied it with brushed hair and some spooky make-up – it was lots of fun!
