Step 1: Things to Buy
wire - dollar tree
tissue paper - dollar tree
flour - Wal-Mart
cardboard - scrap pieces
Step 2: First Begin by Cutting Large Circles Out of Cardboard
Step 3: Adding Wire
I cut little slices into the cardboard for the wire to slip into.
the more you do here the better it will hold up the shape
Step 4: Paper Mache
Just begin adding layer by layer of strips of paper, preferably white. and continue adding layers.
Step 5: Adding the Tissue Paper
I start the process of covering the entire sphere with tissue paper. bought from the dollar store.
I begin by folding it down to about a 2 inch tall strip.
then cut it to 6 inch wide.
if you cut it to long it won't easily form around the sphere.
add glue and go from the bottom up.
cut some of the paper off the top.
this will reveal some of the wire.
also it will allow for the candy to be dropped in. the head in the end will cover this hole.
Step 6: Starting the Bb8 Head
I paper mache the inside with about 2-3 layers
Step 7: Let Dry a Night...
Step 8: Adding Detail
add white tissue paper then add some
Orange paper streamers bought from the dollar store.
add circles made from construction paper.
Step 9: Your Done!!
Be sure to leave the wire out to pull through the head and out to hold the piñata .
