Easy Easter Egg Crafts

Today I’m sharing Easter egg crafts. The days are getting longer and soon will be spring. Easter isn’t far it’s April 4th, so I think it’s a great time to begin sharing ideas for spring, don’t you?

After finding this 6″ paper Mache egg on Factory Direct Crafts I bought the egg and began thinking of spring egg craft ideas.

How I Began My Easter Egg Crafts

Briefly, I was planning to paint the egg pink as you can see in this picture. However, thinking how using smaller paper Mache eggs I had bought. I had decided keeping the eggs in the same color is best, so I begin creating my Spring egg project.

So now, I begin painting my egg two coats ASCP Old white and let it dry in between coats.

As you can see in this picture, before I made plans to use a graphic image an applique was the plan for Easter egg craft. However, realizing the applique may be a problem since the paper Mache egg has an arc the applique would be an issue.

Adding a Piece of Lace to the Egg Craft

So then, I continue cutting my lace and using Mod Podge I add the lace and pat to adhere to the egg project. Incidentally, I used plastic wrap to keep the lace from wrinkling however, I did forget to take a picture.

This is where I learned about the plastic wrap trick The Apple Street Cottage, take a look.

By the way, this is when I had chosen my graphic I have had on my computer. Also using scissors that add a fancy edge gives this graphic a pretty look to my Easter egg craft.

After I cut the graphic, I add Mod Podge and I place it on the Easter egg project. Computer paper has gotten thinner, so I immediately use the plastic wrap again and the image is perfect. The plastic wrap together with the Mod Podge will definitely be something I do when using graphic image.

Adding Lace Ribbon to Give the Lace Finished Edges

In the meantime, I cut lace ribbon to finish the lace off. It gives the lace a nice, finished edge and also adds another layer of texture to the front of my Easter egg project.

So then, using dry Chamomile buds I have and add them using Elmer’s glue giving my Easter egg craft elegance.

Lastly, I place the Easter egg piece into my French Jardinière where I have added moss and a nest, I created that you may enjoy seeing in this post.  Spanish moss is placed inside for another element of texture and spring craft project fits nicely inside the nest.
