This is a craft where you get in a bit of a sticky mess – but it’s fun! The egg shape is polystyrene. (I bought them from Amazon) I covered it in PVA glue and added tissue paper layers. If you finish off with a layer of glue it’ll look shiny. Experiment with the decoration. I added some cut up feathers to one egg. Chocolate sweet wrappers would look great too. Leave the decorated eggs to dry on some clingfilm as they shouldn’t stick to the film!

You can use pritt stick for the tissue paper instead! I’ve done that on several occasions. Doesn’t end up shiny, of course.
thanks Kirsty – we often use glue sticks and I hadn’t even thought of trying it for this craft!
It surprised me how well it worked.
