  1. How-To

    Tissue-Paper-Decorated Eggs

    Hide

    Perched on baking-cup pedestals, these plain blown eggs were decorated with cutouts from folded pastel tissue paper. 

    With a hole punch and small, sharp scissors, cut simple shapes out of accordion-folded tissue; dots and teardrops combine well to make flowers. With a small paintbrush, apply craft glue to the egg. Using fingers, press on the cutouts; wipe away excess glue. 

    Keep fingers clean as you work; wet glue attracts dirt. Glue may discolor egg dyes, so undyed eggs are best.

  2. Cracked Paper Eggshell Dishes

    Hide

    The "cracked" tops of papier-mache eggshells with pink, gold, and white linings become dishes for foil-wrapped chocolates and candy eggs. For the nest, decorative paper is cut with fringe scissors.

  3. Magician Cape

    Hide

    All we did to transform a mere 7-year-old boy to a mighty magician was use a fabric marker to draw a tie and collar onto a white T-shirt, affix a fake carnation to his lapel, and tie a black-and-red satin cape around his neck. And lo and behold: a levitating maestro ready to make piles of candy disappear.

    Cape How-To
    This unadorned cape falls just above the knee. You will need black satin and red satin fabric and two 14-inch pieces of red satin ribbon for ties. Make the cape following the basic directions. Stitch the ribbons securely to either side of the neck.
