Make a mini dress form with a paper mache mannequin….

 So, what can you do with a wood candle stick with the top cut off, a cardboard mini -bust  and a wood plaque?

To start, cut the top off of the candlestick and save it for a future project when you just know you are going to need it…Use regular tacky glue and hot glue.  The hot glue  keeps it together while the tacky glue dries. You can find supplies for this project here.

Glue the wood bases together and the paper mache mannequin bust on top to create a DIY mini dress form

It’s so simple and easy. It would be great for jewelry display! In the photo next to the mannequin, I glued an architectural piece onto a wood base to create a decor item.

  1. So funny that I just saw this Jennifer. I found an old dress form about that size that was made of plaster with a beautiful texture. I gave it a quick coat of paint then put it on a stand like you did and I am so happy with the results! I have to look for the paper mache one next!
    Thanks for all your inspiration and I love your book 🙂
