Paper Mache Recipes

Paper Mache can be used for all kinds of art projects and especially to make a Paper Mache Pinata for a birthday party. 

 

There are many different ways to make the Paper Mache paste. 

Make sure to start your project
4 - 5 days before the party so it will have time to dry. 

 


For piñatas - cover a large balloon with the paper mache paste.  When dry cut a 2" x 2" hole in the top of the piñata cutting only 3 sides and leaving one side attached as a hinge.  Pop the balloon and discard.  Decorate the piñata.  Fill with wrapped candies and small toys.  Close and tape the hole closed.   Attach a string to hold the piñata by drilling two holes in the top and threading a heavy string or small rope through the holes.     

Directions:
Dip newspaper strips into paper mache mixture and wipe off excess by pulling the strip gently between two fingers.  Lay strips onto blown up balloons (perfect for piñatas), 2 liter bottles, milk jugs, etc. 

Continue layering the strips until the object is
covered in up to 4 layers of newspaper.  Let dry completely - this will usually take 2 - 3 days. 

Paint outside of object with acrylic paints or glue on squares of colorful tissue paper.


Make this easy pinata by using paper mache over a balloon and then decorating it with layers of round tissue paper or, even easier, paper cupcake liners.
