Girl with umbrella

Girl with umbrella (made from a paper cup)

How to make Paper Cup People.

The girl is made from an upturned paper cup, and a ball of newspaper makes the head shape. The arms are made from one tight roll of newspaper which is threaded through holes made in the sides of the cup. The legs are made from a longer tight roll of newspaper, bent into an inverted U shape and taped inside the cup. The ends of the legs are bent to form feet and fastened securely to a base. Florist´s wire may be used in the rolled tubes for added strength.

The umbrella is made from a folded circle of white paper glued onto a piece of florist´s wire. The bobble hat and the coat collar are made from tissue paper glued on and painted.
