My friend Esther showed me an ornament she made for Christmas and I loved the technique and the result, so I have tried it for this year’s Easter decoration. I’m having a very good time with it, it’s an enjoyable but not difficult craft, so I’ll continue with my daughter. I hope you like it.
The question is to cover polystyrene eggs with fabric, inserting the edges of the fabric pieces in the cracks we’ve made previosly on the polystyrene. These are the steps:
1- Draw the lines where the cracks will be, creating the design of the egg you like.
2- Make the cracks with a cutter.
3- Cover the egg with the chosen fabrics, inserting the edges in the cracks. I have used the same cutter by the side which doesn’t cut. You can use also a thin knife which doesn’t cut or something similar, but not thick to avoid the crack opens.
4- Finally, cover the cracks with ribbon, and use silicone to fix them (you can also use any glue for fabric). And I’ve used the ribbon to hang up the eggs, securing it with a pin.
Nice, don’t you think?
