Kitty Cat Papier Mache Craft
This paper craft idea is the purr-fect way to added some painted crafts to your home decor.
In the Designer's Words: "I found this cute paper mache cat and thought it would look great on my coffee table. I used my cats as a guide (and looked at how to do cat eyes on the internet) and had my dad give me some painting pointers. This was my first painting project where it was supposed to actually look like something! I painted my initials and the date on the paws of the cat so that I would remember when I had did it. It was a little challenging because I hadn't painted before but it was fun! I think it looks cute!"
