LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

Look at this! A post about making something for Easter – BEFORE Easter!!


Unheard of.

Feel free to use my idea for your group / own decorations, but please tell people where you got it from – link me up 🙂

Anyhow, this is the craft for Guides this week. Gather your resources: a polystyrene egg, a wooden skewer, about 30cms of Easter ribbon, a fluffy chick, glue and sequins.


Using the skewer, carefully push a hole through the centre of the egg from the wide bottom to the pointed top.


Remove the skewer then use it to push the ribbon, folded in half, through the hole to make a hanging loop. Knot the bottom end and pull through.


Next we have to do some surgery – unfortunately the chick requires some foot amputation so that it can then be poked into the egg. I used the skewer to start the holes, then pushed the chicks legs into the polystyrene until it sits comfortably.

Now it’s glue time. Smother the egg in glue and then dip it in a half full jar of sequins or roll it in sequins – up to you which technique you use. Leave these to dry. My advice is don’t mess about with it. Cover it in sequins and leave it. I’m sure another layer can be added when it’s dry if you can’t stand to have any gaps at all.

As I said this is for Guides, so I’m not being too precious.

And here it is – one sparkly decoration for your Easter table or to hang on a plant in your house. Cute huh.
