Easter Eggs

May 13, 2009

I kno9w that it’s 6 plus weeks after Easter but I’m just getting around to getting this pictures onto my computer.  Maggie didn’t have day care on Good Friday, and I didn’t have work.  So, it was decided that we get a craft to make, spend some time together crafting, and hopefully end up with an Easter decoration.  So, after some searching, I came upon an idea that I loved here.  Though this particular craft called for blown eggs…and really, I wasn’t going to blow eggs, plus I wanted something that would last, so I thought I could pick up a styrafoam or wooden eggs.

I couldn’t find styrafoam eggs, nor could I find enough different flower punches when I went to Micheal’s nor Hobby Lobby.  Instead, we ended up with wooden eggs.  After purchasing a couple of different acrylic paints, along with glitter, tissue paper, paint brushes and tissue paper (and $35 dollars later!) we had everything we needed to make the eggs.

The blue egg with the purple flowers is just the tissue paper punched and applied with some water/glue mixture.  We ended up having to put two layers of tissue paper down because I went with pastels and they were nearly invisible.

The purple egg was made with redline tape and rolled in glitter.  The blue egg was made with stickles (warning…very very messy!)

The overall project wasn’t too hard, though it was time consuming to wait for the paint to dry…considering we had to hold them because I didn’t think that far ahead.  I think it looked great on the table, and I look forward to putting it on the table for many more years to come!
