DIY Paper Mache Teacup by Ann Wood

I came across such an inspirational project while surfing for paper mache ideas on the web… I bumped in to the wonderful world of Ann Wood, whom I’ve known for years, but never thought to look at her blog for such a project. Sure enough, talented Ms. Ann shared a DIY project from A-Z on how to make Paper Mache (Papier-mâché) Teacups and my little heart nearly leaped from my chest. Hey, it doesn’t take much for me – some girls want diamonds and I’m perfectly pleased with a nice little project to try at home with my girlfriends…


To see the entire project, download the teacup template, and to see what Ann Wood is up to lately you’ll need to click here. She’ll love to have you pop by for a visit, I’m sure. And if you make any pretty paper mache teacups, let me know!

    I saw that ship tea cup on Pinterest (and “liked” it) but I had no idea it was Ann Wood or that there was a tutorial!! I really want to try this.

    I love these tea cups. They are so cool. The most creative paper mache thing I have mad is a money box cow ;) and a money box shuttle bus. ;) I should expand my range.
