Mother Earth Egg
When it comes to trying out crazy designs, an Easter egg is the perfect medium. You can even decoupage wooden eggs, like this Mother Earth egg from Crystal Donnelly. Best of all, it's great for Easter or Earth Day art projects!
- A wooden egg
- Decoupage glue
- Computer and printer
- Small paintbrush
- Search on your computer clip art program for pictures of Earth from space and print two or three versions.
- Cut out the motifs and then cut in smaller pieces. This Earth is definitely not flat so you need to just layer and add small pieces to the egg. The only rule is to make sure that you put the predominately white pieces on the top and bottom of the egg.
- Spread some decoupage glue on small sections of the egg, add a piece of clip art and smooth with your fingers. Smoothing with your fingers helps remove some of the wrinkles. It doesn’t matter if there still are some wrinkles as it give the piece added dimension. Once the piece is stuck add more glue on the top.
- Continue working around the egg until the entire egg is covered. Let dry. When it is dry you may brush another coat of decoupage glue on the top for added shine.
