use up your eggs...January 20th, 2009 in member junk
Egg carton paper mache. I use the eggshells in the garden to prevent cutworms and blossom end rot in my tomatoes. I love the feeling of knowing that every bit of a purchase of eggs is used.
In the past I've made handprints of my girls using this paper mache. I am currently making a Christmas Tree Advent hanging. I am use tubes from seed beads and e-beads for the daily 'surprise,' which will be special notes on rolled up slips of paper.
It is not a good idea for pinatas - they don't break very easily at all.
The cross is nearly three feet tall and is remarkably heavy.
