Cana's Future Craft of the Week: Paper Mache Yarn Bowls

So here is my future craft of the week:  Paper Mache Yarn Bowls.

Combine ½ cup flour and 2 cups cold water in a bowl.

Boil 2 cups of water in a sauce pan and add the flour and cold water mixture.

Bring to a boil again.

Remove from heat and add 3 tablespoons of sugar.

Let cool. The paste will thicken as it cools.
Wrap saran wrap around a bowl (or you can just use a balloon).  Dip the yarn in the paper mache mixture and then wrap it around the bowl.  Let dry for 24 hours before remove the yarn bowl from the bowl.
