Egg-citing Easter Egg Baubles

8 February 2024

Create Egg-citing Easter Egg Bauble decorations this Easter! Traditionally, an Easter egg was a hard-boiled chicken egg, dyed different colours and eaten at Easter. Over time, this tradition has transformed into thin hollow chocolate eggs. Did you know that one Australian chocolate company makes eggs all year round to get ready for Easter? They make over 3 million eggs and over 16 million chocolate bunnies! Wow, that’s a lot of chocolate eggs!

Video Tutorial & Instructions



Step One:

After printing out the Easter Egg template, use a variety of Faber-Castell colour pencils, crayons and Connector Pens to create colour gradients, interesting patterns and shapes as you colour.

Step Two:

Using scissors, carefully cut around the outside of the egg panels.

Step Three:

Fold each egg panel in half, lengthways, so that the coloured design is on the inside. To start, put glue on the blank back of one half of the folded egg panels. Carefully line it up with a different panel, press them together until they stick, and secure with paperclips top and bottom while it dries. Make sure to cover the entire panel side with glue for better adhesion and to create stronger bonds. Repeat this process with the other panels until all are stuck together, creating a 3D egg. Leave in a safe place to dry.

Step Four:

Once the egg is completely dry, punch a hole in the top and tie a looped string through the hole. Now your beautiful eggs are complete and are ready to add Easter charm to any room!
