Hello friends and welcome back! I joined 19 other amazing bloggers in a spring craft blog hop and was asked to create something to share. I am so excited to show you how to make these super simple primitive Easter eggs!
You will have so much fun making them and the best part is that you can put them in a nest and use it for Robbins eggs and leave them out way longer than Easter! Score! Are you ready? Let’s get to work!
paper or newspaper
Paper Mache paste (here is the recipe I used)
Start by ripping strips of paper. Then make your paste. I like mine to be a little thicker for this project because the eggs are so slippy to begin with.
After you have your paste and paper ready start by dipping a strip in and then covering each egg with paper. I only covered the egg with one layer of paper. Just enough to cover all of the egg.
It gets super messy…but hey, that’s the fun part!
After your eggs are covered let them sit until they are starting to harden. Then I grab them and smoosh them down to make sure there are no papers sticking to far up. I mean you want it to be bumpy but you also do not want holes or any part of the plastic showing.
Then let them dry completely! This can take a while depending on how thick your paper was and all that jazz.
Now we are going to paint your lovely eggs. I used yellow chalk paint, decoupage antiquing stain, and a really pretty primitive blue color.
After the paint is dry its time to grunge them up some!
Paint a coat of mod podge on leaving spots with no glue. Put cinnamon into a shallow dish and then roll the egg around.
Isn’t that fun looking! Ahhhh dreamy primitive Easter eggs!
How amazing are these guys! I adore them so much! You can do them in whatever color, stick them in baskets, nests, candle pedestals..whatever you can dream up! They will look perfect and I bet you will get some compliments on them for sure!
Happy Easter Ya’ll!
