Use paint and glitter to decorate a useful storage tub for pens and pencils. Choose a cylindrically shaped container to recycle into a pencil tub and cover it with a layer of papier mache to make it stronger and provide a good surface to decorate.
You will need:
- Cardboard containers
Steps to follow:
Step # 1
Start by covering the container with a layer of newspaper squares, glued on. Cover the container and leave it in a warm, airy place to dry.
Step # 2
When the papier mache is completely dry, paint on a base coat and allows it to dry. You may need two coats of paint.
Step # 3
Paint on the fish and seaweed, using one color at a time. Don’t forget to paint on some air bubbles above the fish.
Step # 4
When the paint is dry, spread glue on areas you want to glitter. Do this one color at a time and leave it to dry between colors.
Step # 5
Note: before you begin, give the cardboard container a quick wash. Stand it upside down to drain and then dry it with a clean towel.
