Then, pack the sheets of liquid glue with brushes, kitchen film, a polystyrene bust, a skewer and a cutter. This craft will take you 4 hours.

Step 1: First Step

Take the bust and cover it with cooking film and then coat with glue.

Begin to cover with strips of paper and then with small pieces of paper. After accumulating a good layer of paper let the bust dry.

Step 2: Start to Make the Dress

Then take the strips of paper and stick one end to the bust, do not stick too much at once it is necessary to let dry between successive layers of leaves.

Accumulate 6/7 layers of leaves on the entire dress. And than let's dry.

Step 3: Cut the Bust

Now it's time to cut the back of the bust with a cutter and then remove it from the polystyrene shape. Put a small piece of tape to hold in place and then stick with pieces of paper.

Step 4: Finish the Dress

If the inside of the bust is not decorated enough position other pieces of paper to make it more beautiful.

Then cover the ends of the sheets with small pieces of paper so that they become invisible. Do not forget to stick a skewer to be able to fix the bust to a pedestal of your choice. Last personal touch, take scissors and cut the neckline and the back of the dress then crumple strips of paper to give volume to the dress.
