Paper mache bowls are a fun and creative project your kids will enjoy. Even better, they’re great gifts for friends and family and are very cheap to make. These are perfect for grandparents, parents, and friends. As with any paper mache project, you only need a small list of ingredients. You’ll need some flour, water, salt, a bowl to use as your form template, plastic wrap, tape, newspaper, paint brushes, acrylic craft paint, and some craft varnish.
