easter eggs you will need

STEP 1) Firstly you need to remove the insides of the eggs.  To do this you need to make a hole in the top and bottom of the egg using the sewing pin.  Pierce the egg a few times in each end to make the holes slightly bigger.  This will make the egg easier to blow out of the shell.   Blow through the top hole and the egg will come out of the bottom.  Submerge your egg shell in warm soapy water to give it a clean and blow the water out.

STEP 2) Paint the eggs using the emulsion.  Allow them to dry on wooden skewers for a perfect finish.  You will need to give each egg a couple of coats of paint.

STEP 3) So that you can get a perfect finish dry them on wooden skewers, or something similar.

STEP 4) Decorate your eggs using PVA glue to secure everything in place.  Wrap ribbon around the middle of the egg and add some embellishments.

STEP 5) The decoupage eggs are made by cutting up small strips of patterned paper, gluing them and wrapping them around the egg.
