Giant Paper Mache Nutcracker, Part 2

Paper-Mache-Nutcracker-2-799x1024My giant paper mache nutcracker is now ready to be covered with a layer of white paper towels. The outlined figures represent 4 ft. tall students, which shows just how tall this guy really is. I’d love to make a whole row of these to line our school hall.
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
• Newspaper
• Paper mache
DIRECTIONS TO DATE
1. The boxes were taped together. Old rulers are used for shoulders, and arms are taped to them.
2. A layer of mache was applied over everything.
