How to Decorate a Mache House
Papier mache is a great craft for all abilities, and this beautiful mache house is no exception! This house is really simply decorated and makes for a lovely decorative piece in your home. Why not pop an LED tealight inside to give a warm, festive glow?
1. Start by painting the window frames, doorframe, porch, ground, roof and the top of chimney with the white paint. When they’re dry give them a second coat – this will give a more even finish.
2. When the second coat of paint has dried, paste PVA glue onto the top of the porch, the ground, the roof and the chimney top. Sprinkle white glitter all over these areas, and after a few minutes shake the excess off.
3. When the glitter has dried use the red acrylic to paint small red dots on the porch and rooftop. Add a little heart just above the door.
4. Assemble the house once everything is dry and display in your home for Christmas!
