- wallpaper paste
- newspaper strips
- toilet paper or paper towels
From paper mache you can make a nice fruit basket. Start with a wad of newspaper and paste newspaper strips around it. Use enough glue, so the work is so wet that you can make figures out of it. Make the last layer of toilet paper and make it smooth.
Tear small pieces of coloured paper from magazines in the color of your fruit and glue them around. Use different shades within one color.
After drying, paint the fruit with varnish.
