And speaking or papier mache... I have always felt that I could create anything using it. I have made many things in my years with papier mache and love to work with it in all it's messiness and simplicity. Just mix up a batch, made a mold of something and cover it... let it dry and paint it. Simple as that. During naptime one day, after the volcano was complete, I decided to try and make butterflies. The butterflies didn't turn out as planned so I moved on to something bigger... birds. Or one bird in particular. Hummingbirds.
There was a lot of messiness in between these steps so the camera was not involved.
Oh, but the wings are simple cut out cardstock with a bend at the body and tape.
I love this little belly.
I used mod podge mixed with fine glitter for the green body and red throat. I painted the belly white and the beak black and added black sequin eyes. I also used heavy duty foil... incase you were wondering.
