Instructions

  1. Use Foam Cutter to cut STYROFOAM™ egg in half lengthwise. To hollow out egg halves, use spoon to scoop out approx. 2″ depth from each half, leaving 1″ border all around inside edge of egg halves.
  2. To prevent egg candy dish from later rolling, re-align egg halves and place on table. Gently press down on top egg half to slightly flatten bottom of bottom egg half. Pick up and use fingers to flatten area a little more. Check to be sure it’s flat and won’t roll.
  3. Plan where sections of orange and yellow stripes will be on egg, lightly marking with pencil. Tear approx. 1″ wide x 12” long strips from seersucker paper. Then tear strips into smaller 1” pieces.
  4. Working on one egg half and one stripe section at a time, apply Glue Stick to STYROFOAM™ and press one paper piece onto foam at a time, covering completely, going around outside and inside of egg.  Repeat with other sections and other egg half to completely cover egg halves.
  5. In plastic container, mix 1 part water with 2 parts Fabric and Paper Glue. Stir with paintbrush. Brush glue mixture onto egg halves. Let dry as two separate egg halves on plastic wrap or bag.
  6. When thoroughly dry, in a well-ventilated area, spray both egg halves inside and out with Sealer. Let dry.
  7. Use Fabric and Paper Glue to attach rick rack, running ends onto inside of egg halves. Embellish eggs with flowers and fabric buttons according to photo.
  8. To use as candy dish, if candy is unwrapped, line inside with new small piece of plastic wrap or clear bag.
