How to Decorate a Mache Egg

Difficulty Beginner
Budget < £10
Time 1 hr +

Easter wouldn’t be Easter without an egg hunt or two around the garden (weather permitting of course!), and this mache egg makes the perfect hiding place, or even a place to deposit all of the found eggs. We’ve decorated our egg using acrylic paint, and then decorated the egg cup with pastel polka dots for a pastel perfect on trend egg, that could also be used as a table centrepiece after the eggs have all been found. However, you could also use decorative papers or even cover the whole thing in glitter!

How to make


Begin by painting the egg and egg cup. For the inside of the egg use gold paint and paint the outside a shade of duck egg blue.


Next, paint the egg cup a pastel pink. Apply three coats for an even coverage, leaving to dry in between coats.


Using a small circle punch cut out polka dots from pastel coloured paper.


Glue the circles onto the egg cup using PVA glue, and leave to dry.


Apply two coats of Mod Podge glue to create a glossy finish.
