Paper Mache Bowl

Give Dad an adorable handmade catch-all dish with a pattern picked just for him. Start by turning over a mixing bowl and covering it with plastic wrap to protect the bowl from glue. Make a mixture of equal parts white glue and water, then dip strips of paper in the mixture and form them around the bowl. If you're using patterned paper, remember to lay the printed side face down to form the pattern on the inside of the bowl. Use three or more layers of paper strips to create a sturdy bowl; when you're done layering, let the bowl dry overnight. Remove the plastic wrap and the finished paper bowl, and use a fine-grit sandpaper to smooth any rough edges.
