How to do :

  1. On a piece of scrapbooking paper, draw the egg silhouettes. Make eggs of various sizes, as desired. To do this, you can fold the paper in half and then draw half an egg. Cut out the folded paper in this way, so that the shape is more symmetrical.

Mark the middle of the egg-shaped boxes on them, then make an incise starting from the top and going down to the middle. Make sure the notches equal the thickness of the corrugated cardboard.

How to do :

  1. Use a piece of cardboard to make the hoop for your wreath. To do this, first trace the large plate on it with a pencil. This would be the outer edge of the hoop.
  2. Using the small dessert plate, trace the inside edge onto the carton. Then cut the excess and the inside to form the hoop.
  3. Cut out the cells in the egg carton and the pointed centers, using scissors.
  4. Cut, still using scissors, the corners of these pointed triangular parts to create petals, which fold outwards. With the scissors, slightly wave the tips of the petals.
  5. In the same way, transform any cell into a flower, by trimming the corners with scissors and folding any petal thus created outwards. Create more notches for an additional amount of petals. Round off the tips of the petals for a more realistic rendering.
  6. Paint the cardboard hoop a green color with the washable paint. Let dry.
  7. Then paint the petals of the flowers with washable paints of various colors. Let dry.
  8. Glue the flowers onto the paper hoop using hot glue or craft glue. Be sure to vary flower sizes and colors as you progress.
  9. For the center, tie colorful pompoms.
  10. Cut “leaves” from the printed scrapbooking paper and then re-attach with glue to the base of the flowers.

Plastic Easter Eggs Decorated With Paper Book In Simple Adult DIY Easter Basket

How to do :

  1. First choose pages from a book or magazine to decorate the plastic eggs. Recover from an old book or magazine, or print a free digital version.
  2. Cut the side margins with a craft knife or scissors. Then, if necessary (in case of anchor jet printing), cover the pages with a few coats of acrylic varnish. Otherwise, there is a risk that the glue varnish dilutes the letters of the text. If laser printing, skip this last step.
  3. Cut the pages into strips one to two centimeters wide. Then, cut each large strip of paper into a few smaller strips..
  4. Using a foam brush, apply a thin coat of glue varnish to the plastic eggs to adhere the paper strips. Apply a dozen strips of paper to each of the eggs, gluing them one at a time. Allow the glue to dry before adding more strips. Do not be too fast and make sure to smooth out any creases during the application process.
  5. It would take 4.5 turns to cover all of each egg. Cut and adjust the size of strips, if necessary, to fit the egg.
  6. Finish the work on the eggs by adding an additional layer of glue varnish.
  7. Print a rabbit and trace directly on the scrapbooking paper, first on a piece of cardboard, which to use as a template. This is not essential but will make the multiplication of the bunny pattern much easier..
  8. Trace the template on the scrapbooking paper and cut out.
  9. Using white glue, attach a bunny silhouette to each of the eggs. Smooth the surface well to avoid bubbles and other irregularities.
  10. Store this beautiful original DIY Easter decoration inside a beautiful basket and use to decorate a fireplace, hallway, centerpiece, etc..
