Striped Easter Eggs Project From Martha Stewart

Are you looking for something to decorate for the Easter holiday? Then you may want to check out this really cute Easter project from Martha Stewart - How to Make Striped Easter Eggs which appears on the Martha Stewart website. These striped eggs would be perfect as a tablescape on your table or side board.

Striped Eggs How-To

Combine various techniques -- bands, leaf garlands, and flowers -- to dress up plain and dyed eggs.

1. To make stripes: Cut strips from a folded sheet of crepe paper with pinking shears. Apply glue to each end of strip; adhere to egg.

2. To make a garland: Cut 18 leaves for each egg from crepe paper. Glue bottom tip of each leaf to egg, overlapping slightly.

3. To make a flower: Cut a 1 3/4-inch circle from crepe paper. Fold in half, and then fold in half again. Pinch pointy end; insert a finger among paper layers and spread them to look like a flower. Fold pointy end, and glue it to underside of flower; let dry. Cut out 2 leaves. Glue flower and leaves to egg.
