Paper Mache Easter Egg


Materials Needed:Paper Mache Egg

Paper mache, newspapers, balloons, crayons, markers or paints, utility knife.



Inflate balloon and tie off.

Prepare paper mach paste and begin covering balloon with mache and strips of newspaper.  Allow to dry overnight.

Paint, decorate and allow to dry.


Brian says:

Use painter’s tape to make straight lines around the egg.

To hang the egg, leave the neck of the balloon exposed and use fishing line to hang for that floating effect.

For an “Easter egg pinata,” leave the area around the balloon neck open. Once dry, bust the balloon and remove from inside.  Fill with some candy and paper mache over the opening.  Allow to dry then paint and decorate.
