This is a tutorial on how to make a paper mache watermelon. You can of course use the instructions here to make all kinds of paper mache things. And this can be used as a pinata too.
Step Two: Now start applying newspapers and masking tape until you get it roughly to the shape of a watermelon. It doesn't have to be perfect at this stage. We will really flesh it out and make it look good with the paper mache.
Step Three: Now apply strips of paper mache and go in different directions. Put it on in several layers and build up the watermelon to a nice shape. With the first layers you don't have to worry too much about wrinkles. But the last layer you should make sure is nice and smooth like th skin of a watermelon.
