SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Styrofoam™ brand foam:
    • Eleven 2-1/2" eggs
    • 3" ball
    • Two 4" disks
  • Acrylic paints: yellow, green, pink, purple and blue
  • Spray paints: fuchsia and bright green
  • Alphabet stickers: 1-1/2"
  • Bright green feather marabou boa
  • Yellow curling ribbon
  • Pompoms, two 1/2" pink
  • Wood dowels: two 1/4"
  • Two white chenille stems
  • 1" straight pins
  • Serrated knife
  • Low-temp glue gun & glue
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Wire cutters

DIRECTIONS:

1. Paint the eggs with the acrylic paints: 2 yellow, 2 green, 2 pink, 2 blue and 3 purple. Let dry. Thread 5 of the eggs (one of each color) onto a chenille stem leaving an equal length of stem at either end. Put alphabet stickers in place to spell “HAPPY" and secure with pins. Thread the last 6 eggs onto another stem. Pin on the alphabet stickers to spell “EASTER".
2. Cut the dowels to 12" and spray paint them bright green. Let dry. Spray the discs bright green, being sure to keep the can 12" away. Spray light coats and let each coat dry before applying the next. Use the serrated knife to cut the ball in half. Spray the rounded side of each half fuchsia and let dry. Glue a half ball to the center of each disc. Glue the dowels into the centers of each half ball. Glue a pink pompom to the top of each dowel. Pin a piece of feather boa around the outside edge of each disc.
3. Attach the “Happy Easter" strands to the dowel posts by wrapping the chenille stem ends around the dowels. Cut two lengths of curling ribbon and tie around the posts above the sign.
