UPDATE: These were originally posted on April Fool’s Day, 2021 under the name Papier-Nonmâché Spheres Home Decor +Tutorial. These are actually a form of cat toy that our local animal shelter uses and often has their younger volunteers assemble from donated tubes. Of course, the tutorial still works!
You know those spheres you see at all the home decor shops? They can be wood, metal, wicker, ceramic, glass, shell, stone, etc. I decided we needed some papier nonmache for our dining table!
I feel so fancy!
And here is how I did it:
- Cut a personal care tissue roll into ~1/2" (1.5 cm) sections.
You will need 3 for each sphere.
- Take one section and nest it into another, at a 30-ish degree angle.
- Take the last section and next it in at 60-ish degree angle.
And there you have it! A quick, inexpensive, and very sophisticated look for your formal dining room or entry hall table!
