Paper Maché Easter Eggs

Hey, everyone! I’m back again for another Make It! Monday post.

With Easter just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to create some decorations perfect for the mantle or the dining room table—paper maché Easter eggs.

These eggs are easy to create, but they are a bit time-consuming. So make sure to set aside plenty of crafting time to make your own little beauties.

First off, you will need some paper maché eggs, acrylic paint, and a handful of brushes.

Give the eggs a few good coats of paint, allowing time to dry in-between coats.

Next, cut some small strips of patterned paper.

Adhere the strips in a criss-cross pattern around the middle of the egg.

After adhering the first row, adhere a second row of another color just below the first, touching the points and leaving diamond-shaped spaces in-between the rows.

When you are finished with the second row, fill in the space with jewels or pearls.

All that is left is to add your decorated eggs to a basket or container and put them on display for the holiday.
