Easter time is family time. We have put together a few easy Easter egg crafting tips for the whole family to bring a little Easter spirit into your own four walls.
Colourful Easter eggs are the classic Easter decorations. There is no limit to your own creativity and with a few simple steps and small tools, blown-out eggs become true works of art.
Felt tip pens are ideal for a particularly precise design of the Easter eggs. With these, abstract patterns, faces and shapes in all colours can be artistically placed on the Easter eggs.
For a particularly fine pattern on the Easter eggs rice is the ideal aid. Simply place the blown out and cleaned eggs together with some rice and acrylic paint in a plastic container, close it and then shake gently. Natural paint is harmless, especially when painting together with children, thus increasing the fun for the whole family.
Food colouring is available in retail stores, but you can also colour Easter eggs with food such as beetroot or spinach according to your colour preferences.
For an extravagant Easter decoration, Easter eggs with a marble pattern are a real eye-catcher. For this you need marbling colours, small bowls for mixing, toothpicks and a stick that fits through the small hole in the egg. For particularly clean work we also recommend disposable gloves. A glass is filled with lukewarm water and a few drops of the desired colours are added to the glass. With a toothpick, simply draw a pattern into the glass and then slowly dip the egg into the glass using the stick. After dipping, pull it out quickly to prevent the effect from being seen twice.
Instead of painting the Easter eggs, they can of course also simply be glued on. This can be done with sugar beads or confetti, among other things. Simply wet the egg with liquid glue and roll it in small bowls with the beads or confetti. Then let it dry for a short time.
