Giant Paper Mache Nutcracker, Part 1

giant paper mache nutcracker diagramThis giant paper mache nutcracker is made from heavy cardboard cartons that contain the pouch-type juices. The boxes are all the same size and strong. This figure is made from heavy cardboard cartons that contain 12 of the pouch-type juices. There are many brands, but the sizes are all the same and the boxes are all wonderfully strong. My nutcracker is now ready to be covered with a layer of paper mache.

MATERIALS
• Empty cardboard Capri sun juice boxes (Note: this was back when the boxes were thick and sturdy)
• Round carton for head
• Cardboard for hat brim
• Packing tape

DIRECTIONS TO DATE
1. The boxes are taped together with heavy duty packing tape.
2. Old rulers are used for shoulders, and arms are taped to them. Make sure your nutcracker stands before you mache and paint him.
