What You'll Need


  • Patterned paper
  • White papier-mâché eggs (Jamali Garden White Papier-Mâché Eggs)
  • Scissors
  • Matte découpage glue
  • Paintbrush


  1. Cut paper into strips about two inches long and a quarter-inch wide.

  2. Brush them with matte découpage glue and smooth onto papier-mâché eggs; let dry.

  3. Snip sheets of another pattern into about 60 strips, each 3/8 inch wide and 18 inches long, with scissors or a paper trimmer. (You can use a shredder, too.)

  4. Twist the whole bunch in your hands, as if you were putting your hair into a bun, then nestle the swirl in a shallow bowl. Top with eggs.
