Brown paper pear


To reuse this cracked pear I mended it with porcelain glue. It kept its shape but it looked awful, so I therefore decided to cover it completely with paper.

Recycled items

  • Cracked ceramic pear
  • Brown paper

You will also need

  • Wallpaper glue
  • Water-based varnish and brush


  1. Tear the brown paper into very small pieces. Use the glue to cover the pear with paper in a papier-mâché way.
  2. Leave to dry. When it is completely dry, protect it with the water-based varnish and again put aside to dry. When it is completely dry it is ready to go on display.
