I woke up this morning
with the worst case of Easter Craft Fever ever!
(Shall I tell you it was only 5.30 when that happened? ... Mmmm. No. Better not.)
But with thoughts of happy eggs and such racing through my head,
sleeping was no longer an option,
and so I skipped out of bed and got straight to work!
Thus it happened that when the sun came up
I was sitting at the kitchen table,
sipping my third cup of coffee,
facing a dressed up egg with facial hair...
And since I had so much fun making this little egg man,
I decided to write a Tutorial,
to let you all share in the Easter FUN!!
So this is what you need:
hard boiled eggs,
pieces of pretty paper
paint or markers
And this is what you do:
Cut the different shapes out of pieces of happy coloured paper
(a half circle and a dot for the party hat, the collar and the bow tie for the cup)
Roll the half circle up to create a cone, and glue.
(Alternatively you can use a piece of (masking) tape to do this...)
Then glue the happy dot to the tip of the party hat,
for that extra fancy touch!
Using a piece of tape, attach the collar to the cup.
I used masking tape to do this,
allowing the pattern of the tape to become part of the costume...
Decorate the bow tie.
(Once again you could use some of that pretty tape...)
And when the Bow is Beautiful as can be,
stick it onto the collar with a tiny drop of glue!
Et voilà... All done!
