Ostara Crafts - Paper Mache Egg

Monday, March 7, 2011
Ok all you crafty witches! Here is a fun thing to do for Ostara.

You will need:

  • a balloon
  • paper
  • flour
  • and paint
  • easter egg grass
  • candy

  1. Blow up the balloon to the size you want. 
  2. Make a paper mache paste by mixing 3 cups water and 1 cup flour. 
  3. Tear the paper in strips; newspaper works best but any paper will do. 
  4. Soak each strip in the paper mache paste and place on the balloon the thicker the layers of the paper the stronger the egg. 
  5. When done allow to dry usually takes 2 days depending on how thick it is. 
  6. When dry decorate egg how you like. 
  7. Finally cut out a hole and place easter grass inside and then fill with candy.
