Paper Plate Wall Hanging

I feel very glad to post my new experiment with paper plate using paper mache technique.

For making this wall hanging all you need

2 Square shaped paper plate
bunch of 2-3 news papers
white school glue
1 cup of water
white tissue papers
red gift wrapper paper
acrylic colors
painting brushes
sparkles and stones

How to make

  • Make 4-5 thin rolls of news paper and stick them to make design you want onto back side of paper plate. Stick thick paper rolls on edges of plates.
  • Once you complete with design and edges. Add white school glue in water and mix well. Make small pieces of tissue paper. Dip painting brush into diluted glue and stick small tissue paper pieces onto plate. Keep repeating the same process till all paper rolls get covered with tissue paper. Use some dark colored gift wrapper paper to give bright edges to plate. Let it dry overnight. White glue becomes transparent after drying.
  • On second day, Paint plates with acrylic colors. Make a design of your choice. Apply some stones and sparkles to highlight design.
  • Attach both the plates using knitting wool. As these paper plates are light weight, knitting wool would work. I have made 2 flowers with same technique and painted with acrylic color. You can use anything of your choice and your home made paper plate wall hanging is ready.
