When I attended the recent Hobbycraft Spring press show I was given a large Easter mache egg box to take home and decorate. As soon as the children saw it they wanted to decorate it so today I left them have a go. They really like decopatch so I let them use some of my favourite Belle and Boo decopatch paper and got out the Mod Podge.
I gave them one half of the egg each as it was quite big, 16cm! Big Brother has decorated a few things with decopatch before so he knew what he was doing.
Little Sis really enjoyed having a go too although ended up with a rather a lot of paper stuck to her fingers!
When they had finished we left it to dry overnight (rather a lot of glue was used!). The finished egg looks beautiful and will be filled with chocolate eggs shortly.
