Etsy Papier-mâché Bowl

DIY: Etsy Papier-mâché Bowl


  • Balloon(s),
  • Newspaper or Magazines
  • Papier-mâché
  • Glue or Modge Podge
  • Paint or Sealant/Varnish
  1. Inflate the balloon, and glue one layer of newspaper strips to the balloon. Wait for it to dry completely and add another layer. I used 4 layers.
  2. When the bowl is completely dry, pop the balloon and cut the edges smooth
  3. Paint the bowl white first, just to ensure the print does not come through the paint.
  4. Paint the inside of the bowl gold, and the outside black. (Optional)
  5. Once it is dry you can paint a thin layer of clear varnish over.
  6. Let it dry.
