Painted Packing Paper Flowers
We painted flowers with the paint left on our pallets after we finished our paper mache artwork.
The brown craft paper was already cut just the right size- it was the packaging between the glass plates we collaged back in December. And it was free too. Yes, I keep everything.
The kids painted the flowers, and then I cut them out at home. A coat of shiny modpodge firmed them up a bit so we could shape them to add dimension. We hung them on the wall with our artist photos- each of the kids holding their paper mache artwork.
