What you need


How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

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

Step 2

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

Step 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.)

Step 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.
