When I was a little girl, I wrote and illustrated a cute little picture book all about Mr and Mrs Egg. Now I have my own Mister, I thought it would be fun to make him a sweet little egg couple for Easter.
Wooden eggs are a cool way to store all sorts of yummy treats, and painting them is easy with the following steps.
Let’s get started with materials…
1. Wooden Easter eggs that twist apart (You can pick them up from your local craft store)
6. Sharpies and a pencil for drawing on faces
7. Black cardboard for bow tie
8. Sequin for hair tie
9. Small chocolate eggs to put inside the wooden eggs
Step 1: Draw your face on the top part of the egg in pencil. I found drawing the hair line first helped to make drawing the face a lot easier.
Just use two dots for eyes and a small line for the mouth.
Step 2: Color in the faces with your sharpie pens.
Step 3: Paint on your hair. I gave mine two coats.
Step 4: Paint the bottoms of your eggs in contrasting colors.
Step 6: Glue the bow tie onto the bottom half of the Mister and the sequin on the hair of your Mrs.
Wait for them to dry and then fill with your eggs.
Your Mister or Mrs will love getting this cute surprise on Easter morning and the best part is, you can use them all year through to store your special things.
