Happy Easter Creations

Yarn Covered Easter Eggs:

Yarn covered Easter eggs will add a fun touch to your Easter table or displayed around the house!  You may purchase paper mache eggs at your local craft store or create homemade paper mache eggs yourself using balloons, newspaper, and glue.  We chose already made paper mache eggs.  After choosing a variety of colors for your yarn, using Modge Podge, simply glue one end of the yarn to the egg and begin wrapping the yarn around the egg.  You may create stripes, solids, or even polka dots using the yarn.  Use Modge Podge throughout this process to ensure the yarn sticks to the egg.  After creating stripes, we chose to paint portions of the eggs with acrylic paint.

Spotted Eggs:

Creating spotted eggs will add a whimsical touch to the traditional Easter egg.  This process is so fun and will be great for the kids to partake.  We used already made paper mache eggs; however, you may create these spotted eggs using hard boiled eggs as well.  You will need acrylic paint in a variety of colors and Q-tips.  Dip the end of a Q-tip into the paint and begin "dotting" the eggs all over.  Choose another color and repeat this step.  You may choose 2, 3, or even 4 different colors to create these spotted eggs.
