3D Paper Eggs: Egg-ceedingly Simple Easter Decorations

Over the last couple of years, I have really enjoyed decorating an “Easter Tree”.  Now before you think that I set up something like a Christmas tree, I don’t.  I find a couple of small branches, blossom or pussy willow work well, and add them to a large vase.  I then hang up our Easter decorations that we have made.  It makes a nice centre piece for an Easter table, plus it is always nice to display the things my charges have made.  This year’s decorations to be hung up are some 3D paper eggs.

Make sure you follow my Easter board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own 3D paper eggs you will need:

  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Template or egg-shaped cookie cutter
  • Glue
  • String
  • Tape

I didn’t have an egg-shaped cookie cutter to hand when I was making some prototypes, so I made a template using some scrap paper.  That way all my eggs were the same size and shape.  When I did them with my charges, I gave them a cookie cutter to draw around.  For little ones, it is easier for them to draw around the inside, kind of like a stencil.

For each 3D paper egg, you will want about 5 cut outs.

When that is done, fold each of them in half length ways.  Also cut yourself some thread to hang them up with.

Glue them together.  When you have glued 3 together tape the thread into place.  Then glue your final ones in.

Remarkably simple to do, and a great way for little ones to practice their cutting stills.
