Easter egg products Newcastle Weekly


This Easter we went on a turn to the classic painted Easter eggs – with foam and papier-mâché – thanks to two craft projects from Spotlight! Hang ready-made eggs around the house or decorate a tree on the street to celebrate the Easter season.

Papier-mâché cracked hanging eggs

What you need

  • Papier-mâché cracked hanging eggs
  • 4.5 cm pastel chicks
  • A set of deco accessories
  • Shneli bunny
  • Acrylic paints in a color of your choice
  • Paint brushes
  • Palette of paints
  • Glue gun
  • Glue sticks
  • Scissors


Step 1: Start by painting the papier-mâché inside and out and allow it to dry.

Step 2: Choose three chicks and stick one egg inside, and the blue bunny – in the second egg.

Step 3: Choose three little flowers and a butterfly from a set of deco accessories. Cut the stem from the flowers. Glue one flower to the front left of each egg.

Step 4: Glue the butterfly to the right top of the egg with the chicks.

Fry the eggs

What you need

  • 7 cm white frothy eggs
  • A set of deco accessories
  • Pink and yellow flowers made of felt
  • 9 mm white, pink, green satin floral
  • Acrylic paints to choose from
  • Paint brushes
  • Palette of paints
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Small hairpins with sequins


Step 1: Remove the bamboo skewer at the base of each foam and, holding the skewer, paint the eggs. Put the skewers in a jar to let the paint dry.

Step 2: Cut a 3 x 60 cm ribbon. Fold the ribbon in half to find the center, and glue the center of the back to the bottom center of the egg. Tie the ends of the ribbon to the sides of the egg and tie together in a knot. Slide the sequin pin through the knot into the top of the egg to secure in place. Tie the ends together and tie a knot at the top to create a loop for hanging. Pruning ends. Repeat for as many eggs as you choose.

Step 3: Select eggs with a hanging loop and glue on the sides of yellow and pink flowers of felt in any style you want.

Step 4: Choose your butterflies from the set of deco accessories and stick them on the egg in any style you want.

Step 5: Choose a butterfly, ladybug and toadstool from the set of deco accessories. Remove the wire and cut the base of the toadstool. Glue a butterfly, a ladybug and a toadstool to the egg.
