Gather coloured cards from the hardware store, cut them into egg shapes to make an egg bunting.
You will need
- polystyrene ring or circle (in which case you’ll need a craft knife)
- several polystyrene eggs in varying sizes
- paints in 4 basic colours (including white) + extra for speckling (suitable for use on polystyrene)
- paint sponges
- old toothbrush
- glue (we used Ponal wood glue)
- wide ribbon in matching colour
- If using a circle, cut out the middle.
- Separate your eggs into four groups with more or less the same number of different-sized eggs in each, and paint them in the base colours. Give them a few coats and allow to dry.
- Brush your thumb over the toothbrush dipped in paint to create a speckled effect on some eggs, using white and darker tones of colours you’re using.
- Once dry, glue the eggs to the wreath and finish off with a ribbon tied in a bow to hang it up.
TIP We taped the twine to the cards on the reverse side to keep them evenly spaced.
