Tut Tuesday: These Eggs Are Tight

March 26, 2012

Easter is just around the corner. Can you believe it? 2012 is flying by and I’m loving every minute. Neon is the new black. And these neon eggs don’t disappoint. Find out what they’re wrapped in after the jump.

 

To make these eggs you’ll need:

  • paper mache eggs (found at Michaels stores)
  • bright paint in various colors
  • paint brushes
  • an old pair of tights
  • rubber bands or tape
Tights! That’s the magic ingredient. Start off painting your eggs solid colors. Cut your tights up into little squares. These don’t need to be perfect. You just need to be able to stretch them over the entire egg.

Once your eggs are dry, wrap them individually with a square from the tights.

Secure the back with a rubber band or tape. Hide that backside in some Easter grass or paper shreds and you’ve got yourself one cool egg.

      Thanks, Julia! I didn’t get a new camera. I’m just starting to figure out how to take better photos! I’m improving. Slowly, but surely.
