Craft for Easter - Beaded Easter Egg

It is hard to believe that this was once a simple white plastic Easter egg. By using the paper napkin applique technique to decorate the egg and then rolling the egg in glass micro beads, you can create this lovely decoration.



Beaded Easter Egg

For this project you will need:

- 1 white plastic egg
- glass micro beads
- paper napkin with small spring or Easter motifs
- paper napkin applique glue
- skewer for holding egg until dry
- flat paint brush


1. Choose the paper napkin motifs you wish to use and tear around each motif. Apply paper napkin applique glue on the egg and brush on the motif. Follow the instructions in this Paper Napkin Applique Tutorial for more on how to use this technique. Once the egg is covered, let it completely dry.
2. Now cover the egg with paper napkin applique glue. The advantage to this glue is that it dries clear. Pour microbeads in a small dish and roll the egg in the beads to completely cover.
