Decorating Easter eggs is so satisfying and fun, and making some that will last from year to year is a great way to remember previous celebrations. These papier mache eggs are great for little kids to craft on since they won’t break like a clown-out egg may. These eggs are graphic and lovely and will not be a chore to make.
Materials you’ll need for this project:
Papier Mache or blown out eggs
Martha Stewart Crafts Paint Brush
Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Multi-Surface Durable Glitter Finish
Plain printer paper
1. Paint egg with two coats craft paint, let dry. The paint palette is a great drying rack for eggs!
2. Fold the origami into fourths.
3. Fold a piece of plain printer paper and put the origami paper in the fold. Punch along the fold with the Cherry Blossom punch. The printer paper will allow you to punch the delicate origami paper without tearing.
4. Trim the ends of the punched strip to continue the pretty flower shape.
5. Paint a heavy coat of glitter decoupage medium around the middle of the egg.
6. Wrap the punched paper strip around egg, brushing on another coat of the decoupage medium. Use the brush and your thumbnail to press the paper strip onto the egg. Cover egg with glitter decoupage medium. You can add more coats to make it even more glittery.
These charming eggs will add sparkle and delight to your Easter decorations.
