I was awesome at papier-mâché. When it came time in Geography to create our own papier-mâché globe, those 5th graders had nothing on me. I would sit for hours, hands covered in school glue, concentrating at an intense level for a ten-year-old. It’s been a few years, but something tells me I’ve still got it.
These DIY Pendant Lamps are essentially papier-mâché for grownups. The two projects today employ hemp and lace doilies as the papier-mâché craft of choice, along with a balloon and glue; but all this talk of fifth grade makes me want to glue macaroni.
We’re still in the honeymoon phase of marriage, the phase where your husband still thinks everything that you do is beyond cute (eh, usually), so I’m thinking he will LOVE a macaroni lamp.
