paper mache eggs

 I whipped up these eggs one afternoon last week.
They were super easy and fairly quick- other than the drying time of course.
I simply took some foam eggs that I bought at one of the cheap shops and covered them with some watered down PVA glue, then covered them with strips of paper and more glue.
One I used some old music sheets that they were throwing out at church and another one I did used an old paper sewing pattern- I actually found it easier just to take a piece and wrap it around to fit because it is so fine.
Finally I used some pieces of an old bible - sacrilege I know! 
This was a Good News New Testament that I was given as a child- it wasn't even the whole bible and we don't use the Good News version any more anyway so I thought it was better to recycle and throw into the trash- I used the sections of the Crucifixion and Resurrection seeing they were Easter Eggs.
I stuck them into some bamboo skewers to dry overnight and

then put them into a vase.
It was messy but lots of fun!!!

  1. That's funny that you used an old bible. That makes me feel better since I had some old bibles that were not keepers (since we have hundreds, it seems like) so I took the covers off for a project. I think the word has power even in paper mache.

  2. a great idea to paper mache the foam eggs! i love old book pages used like this.

  3. I love book page project! You eggs turned put so cute :) Happy Easter,
