DIY materials

To make Easter eggs out of paper, we need:

  • small balloons;
  • white and colored tissue paper;
  • PVA glue;
  • tassel;
  • hole puncher;
  • scissors;
  • rope;
  • cup.

Cut out a 25 cm x 14 cm rectangle, one 25 cm x 11.5 cm rectangle, and two 25 cm x 9 cm rectangles from white tissue paper. These are the four pieces that will form the base of the egg.

Cut out squares from colored paper with holes that will be peas on each egg. To do this, cut a strip of tissue paper 4 cm wide (for the entire length of the paper), fold the strip several times until you get squares of about 4 cm. Then make holes with a hole punch or by hand and cut each square separately. From colored paper, make several strips 2.5 cm wide and triangles of different sizes.
