Tiny Paper Mache White Cloud
We are going to show you how to put a tiny Whimsy cloud in a jar. We have seen everything from plants to fish put into a jar but never have you seen a fluffy white cloud capture in a tiny jar.
So why not, cloud are so beautiful and one of my favorite gifts from Heaven. Relax and we will float right into the wonderful world of paper mache.
You can use any size jar to display your paper mache cloud by adjusting the cloud to fit.
Specialty paper and Elmer's Glue
1 Creating a Tiny cloud
Roll up paper into a 4 tiny ball; glue the balls together in the shape of cloud. Paper mache a layer of white paper over your cloud armature (the balls). Or you can decoupage white paper over the armature. Either way set the cloud aside to dry.

Once the cloud has dried spray paint white and let dry. Brush glue onto your cloud and apply a small amount of cotton. Separate a cotton ball and lay your cloud onto to collect the cloud. Let this dry onto your cloud armature before spray with glitter or leave alone, they look cute either way.
2 Prepare the Jar
Clean your jar before your start. Take the lid and decoupage the lid with blue paper or white and then paint it blue.
Cut out 3 cardboard circles and tape them together to create the sky. Decoupage or paper mache blue paper over your sky armature. Also glue long fishing wire to the sky to hang your cloud; you can trim the extra off once you have tied your cloud. Let this dry.
All that is left is to put your tiny cloud into your jar and enjoy.
"Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord." 1 Thessalonians 4:17
