I don’t normally get into holiday crafts, but I saw Alisa Burke’s post about her lovely canvas wrapped easter eggs, and wanted to try my own. Over my students’ spring break, I needed a craft, and as the canvas might have been a little much (just for materials and time, if nothing else) so I improvised. I did the same project with two 4th grade students, and they each made a handful of great looking eggs. The two I finished were done alongside my students, and the last one I ran out of time to decorate. I may do more eggs later, holiday or not!
This one is my favorite:
How did I make them? Pretty simple.
1. Take a plastic egg, and decoupage with tissue paper and white glue.
2. When sufficiently covered, decoupage other colors if needed.
3. Glue decorations such as rhinestones, buttons, sequins, flowers, etc.
4. Let dry.
Tada! Pretty Easter egg!
