Tissue Paper Easter Egg


Today I want to share with you this fun and VERY simple art project for the little ones. I did this with my daughter the other day and she had a blast! I am pretty sure just by looking at the picture you can figure out what to do but here are some pictures and quick instructions on how we did it.


First I printed out the silhouette of an egg shape that I got off a Google search and cut it out.
Then I poured some cheap Elmer's glue onto a plate and used a brush to apply the glue to the egg.
Take any color of tissue paper and rip it into small pieces. 


Wad up the pieces of tissue paper and place onto glued parts of the egg.



Continue to wad and paste down until you are done!





TA-DA!! All complete! 


Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Your little gal is so sweet. She did a great job on her egg. Looks like she's gonna follow her Mom in crafting. Think it's great when little ones get to make things, very good for them in many ways. She can be very proud of her talents. Happy March

  3. Hello Nichole!
    I'm stopping by from the Oldie but Goodie Link Party. I just love this idea - how old is your daughter? I'd like to give this a try with my son - we've just had a bunch of birthdays here so I've got lots of tissue paper on hand we can upcycle!
