Make these one-of-a-kind elephant and squirrel pull toys for unique Handmade Holiday gifts -- perfect for kids.
Tips for papier-mache:
- Moisten fingers while working by dipping them in a bowl of water.
- Apply papier-mache a little at a time, allowing it to dry and strengthen before continuing.
- If the animal is not stable enough to stand at this stage (likely for the squirrel), it's helpful to work on one side at a time.
- A 200-degree oven speeds drying time.
Special thanks to crafter Katie Steuernagle for showing how to make this wonderful gift.
