How not to: The worst thing you can do to an Easter egg is leave it plain. Because that?s just a boiled egg which is rather boring at Easter. Plan: You will need

  • some hardboiled eggs (but make sure they have cooled down you don't want to burn your hands)
  • some pictures of your family printed on paper
  • some Decopatch PaperPatch glue/varnish
  • some scissors

Step one: Use the scissors to cut out the faces that you want to use for the eggs. Make sure the images are small enough to fit onto the eggs. Step two: Use a small paintbrush to add some glue to a small area.Step three: Carefully place the picture over the glue. If necessary, trim size to adjust to the form of the egg.

Step four: : Once dry, use a paintbrush to coat the entire egg with glue. This will really fix the pictures into place and add a nice varnish. Wait until dry, add another coat and leave to dry completely.After: Place your handy work in egg cups and present your family members with a simple but pleasant Easter surprise.
