EASTER EGG TREES
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 2 x packets of large plastic eggs
- 2 x packets of small plastic eggs
- Polystyrene ball 15cm
- Got glue gun and glue sticks
- Packet of assorted pom poms
- Wooden Dowel
- Easter tins x 2
- Polystyrene ball to fit inside the Easter tins
- Paper shred
Step 1 - Push the dowel rod into the centre of the large polystyrene ball.
Step 2 - Open a plastic egg and hold it up against the polystyrene ball in the position you want it to sit. We started from the
bottom on the ball (next to the dowel) and worked our way to the top. For the bottom ones you can use a pin through the whole in each egg to help secure it into the polystyrene or you can just use lots of hot glue to secure each egg in place.
Step 3 - Continue positioning eggs and pinning/gluing in place row by row until you have covered the entire polystyrene ball.
Step 4 - Once you have finished with the plastic eggs, open the packet of assorted pom poms and fill any gaps/holes between eggs with pom poms so your egg tree looks nice and full!
Step 5 - Position the other polystyrene ball into the tin so it is secure and can't move. If you need to cut a bit off it so it fits neatly in
the tin you can. Then push the other end of the dowel into the polystyrene tin so your tree sits centred in the tin.
Step 6 - To finish fill the top of your tin with paper shred and your Easter egg tree is complete!
