So, in order to make a newspaper cutting confetti bowl, we need:
- A big sized balloon
- Fevicol stick,
- tissue papers
- Old Newspapers
- Paint brush
So let’s just start up by blowing a big balloon and tying its knot. After the balloon is being blown up, keep it aside for a while and proceed towards the next step. Now, take a bowl and pour some fevicol and water into it in the ratio 5:3. Tear the newspaper into small bits and start pasting them onto to the balloon by applying the fevicol solution, also called GUM PASTE, using a paint brush.
These pieces of a newspaper should be glued onto the balloon so as to give it a shape of a bowl. Now keep this ball- pot thing aside until it dries off. After it dries off, burst the balloon. But before bursting, make sure that the newspaper layer on the balloon is thick enough.
Now the bowl is to be covered with a layer of tissue paper. For this layer, again apply the bits of tissue papers using the fevicol solution. Let it get dry. After this drying process, take some colored and glossy part of the newspaper and prepare the CONFETTI. (Confetti refers to the smallest bits of papers which are colorful in nature.) Now, paste the confetti onto the prepared bowl.
The confetti should be pasted such that there is not even a single spot visible of the tissue layer. Keep the ready bowl aside so that it gets hard enough to be a BOWL. If you want your newspaper cutting confetti bowl to be more lustrous, sprinkle or paste some glitters onto your bowl. And here, your most awaited NEWSPAPER CUTTING CONFETTI BOWL is ready to take place in your homes on the table top.
