Nostalgic papier mâché containers

Do you love nostalgic Christmas items as much as I do? If so you will love the papier mâché boxes from Thuringia in Germany that I offer you here. There are balls in 3 different sizes, cloches in two sizes, as well as walnuts and pinecones. You can embellish them to your hearts content. I have embellished a few as examples for you:

These are the small balls. At first I painted them with fast drying acrylic paints in frosty white, silver or gold and then I embellished them with Dresden foil trims and borders, woven ribbon and dots of vintage sheet music paper:

The small balls are 6 cm wide, the pine cone is 8 cm and the walnut is 10 cm wide.

Then there are bigger balls in 8cm and 10 cm. Here is another example on how to use them. I used only one half of the 10 cm wide balls to create a little Christmas scene in it.

To create these ball theaters with Christmas scenes I lined one ball half with thin aluminium foil and then glued silver tinsel around the edges of the ball. You can fill them with whatever springs to your mind.

Of course it isn't limited to Christmas decorations, you can use these balls for every holiday depending on how you embellished them.

I can also offer you papier mâché cloches in two sizes, 12 cm and 13 cm wide:

Here are some more examples on how to embellish them:

They all have a little golden hanger and they all open up so that you can fill them with candies or little surprises. I also think that they make beautiful gift containers.

If you are interested please send me an e-mail to Carolinchen39athotmaildotcom and I'll send you a price list.
