This Easter Decoration Project, creates egg-ceptional colourful mod-style Eaters eggs with simple tie-dye and tissue-paper techniques. Decorating Easter eggs has never been easier or less messy than with traditional food-coloring dyes. This project is perfect for art class or to do at home with the kids.
Easter Decoration Project: Tissue paper Easter eggs
Place a small bowl of water (jar lids can also be used) and several squares of tissue paper on your work area. Place eggs on tea-light stands. Scissors can be used to cut out assorted geometric shapes (hand-torn pieces are just as effective).
With a paint brush, dampen the egg and then place many tissue paper shapes over the egg, one at a time, overlapping and moistening as you go. When the egg is fully covered, let it stand for a few minutes.You now have two options:1.Remove the tissue paper before it completely dries and you now have enchanting marbleized eggs with the look of egg-dying without using egg dyes. 2.Apply Mod-Podge medium with a paint brush directly onto the still-humid, tissued eggs and let stand to dry. You can apply vanish if you wish once it is completely dried. You now have very groovy colorful Easter eggs ready for a hip décor theme.
