Easter eggs constructed style

Easter Eggs Constructed Style

There are many ways of crafting easter eggs. Way back in the seventies I made a bunch of batik style coloured blown eggs. So adorable! In most years I put them on display around Easter, but every now and then I feel like trying something new ...

Easter Nest

This time my Easter eggs are not artfully decorated, instead they are done in a very modern constructed style: 3 egg-shaped craft foam discs stuck together in the middle.

This is done very easily:

Cut out 3 equally shaped parts using a template (my egg is about 7 cm high and about 5,5 cm wide).

3 Moosgummiteile in Eiform mit Schlitzen zum Zusammenstecken

In order to assemble the pieces, each one has to be slit in a different place, as can be seen in the image. Place the eggs next to each other in a straight row. Divide the height in 3 sections, use a ruler to find the points where the vertical axes meet with the horizontally dividing lines and mark them.

Eiformen nebeneinander mit eingezeichneten Achsen

Cut out a 2 mm wide slit along each egg's vertical axis from the edge(s) to the respective mark(s).

Locker ineinander geschobene Ei-Formen

If the slits are cut out well, the shapes should come together nicely.Ineinander geschobene Ei-Formen

The only thing missing is the Easter grass. That's an easy one. Take a green paper napkin, cut it in strips 7 to 10 mm wide, pull the layers apart and fluff them up a bit, decorate them in a bowl, and carefully arrange the eggs in the nest. Done!

Happy Easter!
