How to make wrapped Easter eggs

See also

The Easter season is just around the corner and this also means spring crafts and decorations, usually revolving around eggs, chicks, and ducklings. Most people hard boil eggs and color them. But, this means that they only last a short time and may easily break. They may not be ideal for some decorating situations. Here is a simple, quick, egg-wrapping craft that will not spoil and can even be used year after year. There are no dyes or toxic ingredients and can even be given as gifts.

The materials needed are as follows:

Plastic Easter eggs that can either open up and have objects placed inside, be solid, or be hollow and don't open up at all. The color of the egg doesn't matter unless you use light-colored tissue paper. While this craft can be done, carefully, with real eggs, it is not recommended as those eggs can break during the craft. If real eggs are used, it is not advisable to eat them after wrapping.

Non-toxic glue that dries clear or nearly clear.

Colored tissue paper, preferably that with a flowered or dark pattern, though any color can be used. The actual color of the egg can show through paper that is light and light tissue paper may not look right after being glued to the egg.

Glitter or confetti is recommended, but optional.

This craft is suitable for both adults and children, though young children should be supervised.

Most of the crafts used in this project were purchased from the Michael's store in Mission Valley in San Diego. The plastic eggs were bought at the 99 Cent Only store on University Avenue, also in San Diego. Other stores may have eggs that vary in size.
