DIY- Papier Maché Giant Easter Eggs

We were looking for a fun idea to create an Easter photo backdrop and so of course we thought, why not make giant papier maché Easter eggs. It turns out our giant eggs would make such a fun decor for your next chocolate egg hunt party!


This is my friend and collaborator, Camille, holding up her festive giant egg!



We really had fun during the photo shoot. Can’t you tell? The cool fact  about the GIANT eggs is that you can use them as a picture backdrop. I think the kids would have fun with this! And how cute would the photo souvenirs be!


I really LOVE how the abstract giant egg turned out! Which one do you prefer?


The awesome thing about papier maché is that it’s super cheap to make! All you need is cardboard (any cardboard, really), masking tape, newspaper scraps, home made glue (a mix of flour and water), some colorful paint and a whole lot of patience! Check this post out for the step by step instructions!


This is me hiding behind the egg…I’m only peeking…well… because I’m a little camera shy. (I’m working on it!!) Camille convinced me to take a picture with the egg but really, I feel so much better behind the camera. Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one on this planet with that problem? Am I really?


The fun part of course, is customizing your eggs! I’m pretty sure big kids and smaller ones will have a blast!
