That’s One Monstrous Piñata


“It all started about 5 years ago with a long cardboard box I found in my garage. I thought to myself, “I could make something out of that” — and now I have. Since then, I have added seven balloons, four oatmeal containers, four tissue boxes, part of an egg carton, a bunch of wrapping paper rolls, a little imagination, and lots and lots of papier mache.”  Mark the Papier Mache Guru

This handsome man with the dragon head is my husband. If you’ve read some of my other posts, you’ll know he has a knack for turning paper and balloons into amazing creatures, like frogs or turkeys.  He took on a big challenge to make a dragon out of a box he found in our garage. Here are a few photos of his progress.

Five years later, with a little less hair and a couple of new wrinkles, here is Mark with his finished dragon.
