Papier-mâché impala

The beauty of papier-mâché is – if you don’t like it, stick something over the top!

Some of you may remember me posting a photo of a cardboard impala covered in a dark red paper ….

Red impala

As much as I loved the red paper, something wasn’t working for me, so I found a lighter, brighter paper and covered it again. this time in a pretty blue.

But it was still lacking something.  Eyes?

Some time ago I bought two candle holders from a charity shop; each with three roses on the base.  I had intended using them for a mosaic but I thought they’d be perfect for this.  Anyway, after enlisting the help of my husband and a Dremel I now had a pair of peepers.

Well, in actual fact I think they look like fluttery eyelashes!
