This is a very simple, but creative way for making very beautiful Easter eggs. And a great fun for the children (also for the older children 🙂 ).
For this methode you need:
egg colour to dip
nylons (can be a old one)
many different, freshly-picked small leaves
At first take a egg, place the leave as flat a spossible on the egg.
Cut off a piece from the nylons about palm-sized. Place it carefully over the egg with the leave. Now span it very tightly.
Tie it up with the yard and dip it into the egg colour.
When the colour is dark enough take it out and dab it off a bit, then cut of the nlyons carefully and take the leave away.
If everything worked out well, it should look like this…
or like this.
This is the work of the last month: Three fairies, Peter Pan and Wendy, a hummingbird, many flowers and leaves for the twig and a lot of falling petals, leaves and stars. Enough stuff for making four mobiles. For the first time I won’t built it together by myself, it would be to big for a parcel anyhow. The person I gave it to liked to built it together by herself as one very big “four season” mobile.
Three fairies, one for spring, one for summer and one for autumn.
Peter Pan and Wendy, waiting for flying through the starry night.
Fixing all this on a twig will need some hours.
