Being a jewelry maker, I’m always looking for different ways to photograph my creations. I got this idea when I stumbled upon mini paper mache dress forms in the 2 for $3 section at Michaels.
For this project you will need:
Mini Paper Mache Dress Form
Mod Podge ( I used matte)
Printed Tissue ( I used a damask print, 5 12x12 sheets to a pack by Recollections also at Michaels)
Coordinating Trim and Paper Flowers
Cover your spool and dress form with Mod Podge; apply paper. When I’m working with tissue paper I like to “pre-scrunch” it since it’s likely to get wrinkly anyway. I find this keeps the wrinkles uniform. You can be exact and line up the patterns, or you can be me.
I trimmed the top of my spool with some leftover pom pom trim, hot glued two coordinating paper flowers to the top of the spool, glued the dress form on and DONE!
Now I have another little photo prop to use in my posts.
