As a child, my favorite Easter craft was diorama eggs. I loved paper mache and each year I would make my own paper mache egg that I would fill with little toy chicks and plastic eggs. I decided to make a grown up version this year, and styled my paper mache egg to look like a sugar egg. Thanks to Mod Podge’s Collage Clay, it’s easy to recreate the look of sugar and icing without the calories (or the sugar ants!)
- 4 inch Paper Mache Egg
- Wooden Egg Stand
- Chalky Finish Paint (white, pink, light green, etc.)
- Mod Podge Collage Clay
- Flocked Rabbits
- Green Festive Yarn or Paper Shred
- Miniature Baskets
- Hot Glue
Step one. Paint the paper mache eggs and wooden stands. Hot glue the egg to a stand.
