BIG Paper Mache Bird

paper mache birdThis rather large paper mache bird makes a great friend or a rather nifty pinata.

Tasha (my eldest) and I made it -- it took Kaitlyn (my youngest) quite awhile before she was comfortable with her new companion.  She's not used to crafts that are bigger than she is *laugh*.

This is the most difficult project on the site so far.  It is not a good "first time paper mache" project.  If this is your first time using paper mache, try one of our other projects before attempting this one.
