Easter decorations since living in London the past 6 years, I thought it was about time to make them again.
They are quite easy to make and are really great if you have made the whole in the eggs a bit to big when blowing them out, as they will be covered with paper anyway.
What you will need:
Eggs that are blown out and sterilised. Click Here to see how.
sheets of handmade paper
string or thin ribbon
PVA glue, that dries transparent
and a small brush
Start by looping through the string or ribbon and making a big enough knot for the ribbon not fall out of the top. tip is to use a match in the loop, so the ribbon doesn’t fall out while you are tying the knot.
Tear the paper into small pieces, making sure you don’t have any straight edges. This will make the pieces seem seamless when applying to the egg.
Then just start gluing a piece of paper at a time onto the egg, brushing from the middle of the piece of paper towards the edges of it. Add a little bit of water to the glue if to thick.
Once the whole egg is covered, leave to dry and then add a second layer if needed.
End with brushing on a layer off glue to seal it all in.
