Egg bunting

Egg bunting

Gather coloured cards from the hardware store, cut them into egg shapes to make an egg bunting.

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)
  • paintbrushes
  • paint sponges
  • old toothbrush
  • glue (we used Ponal wood glue)
  • wide ribbon in matching colour

To make

  1. If using a circle, cut out the middle.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
