How to Make Paper Pulp

Paper Pulp is a texture rich material that can be used in a variety of craft projects. Paper pulp can be molded into whatever shape you need, making it especially wonderful for young children and useful for thematic units. This is a messy project so be prepared!

Materials:

  • Paper
  • Water
  • Blender

Step 1

Choose a color! Rip up some paper scraps into small pieces. We'll be using blue and green.

Step 2

You can soak the paper until it is soft.....Or if you are impatient......

Step 3

....then you can whip out your blender! Just pour the warm water and paper into the blender and give it a few pulses.

Step 4

Your paper will with be nice and pulpy and still a bit of liquid left over.

Step 5

If you scoop your hand in and squeeze off the excess water, you're left with a mushy paper pulp.

Step 6

Take your pulp and place it inside the shape you want to make with it. We are making mittens for our "Be Responsible" bible lesson.

Step 7

Once your pattern is completly full of paper pulp, it's time to let it dry. This can take a while....leave it out in the sun if you can.

Step 8

Once dry, carefully remove your paper from the template sheet. You now have a 3-D paper in the shape of your choice!
