Easter Made Easy
Think outside of the box (the Easter egg coloring box, that is) and create something out of the ordinary for your Easter egg hunt.
Stuff you'll need:
-wood or papier-mâché eggs (can be purchased at craft stores)
-light-colored acrylic paint
-floral paper items such as napkins, stickers, wrapping paper
How you'll do it:
1. Paint the egg; allow to dry.
2. Cut or tear the designs you'd like to use out of the paper item.
3. Use the foam brush to apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the area you'll be applying the paper design to. Position the paper in the glue; smooth out wrinkles and apply another thin layer of glue on top of the paper. Repeat until you have the desired number of designs on the egg.
4. Apply two or three more coats of Mod Podge, allowing to dry in between coats. For extra protection, apply a coat of polyacrylic.
