I just could not stop giggling whilst making the following Easter eggs.
I really hope they will make you smile.
You can find templates for all of the ‘clothes’, feet and badges available to download free of charge here…Superhero templates
How to Make a Spider-egg-man:
First dye a blown-out egg-shell overnight in a large bowl containing one cup of water and one teaspoon of red food colouring.
Remove and allow to dry thoroughly for 24 hours.
With a permanent marker draw on web lines over the top 2/3 of your egg.
Next paint the bottom 1/3 of your egg with Modge Podge glue or similar.
To this, add small strips of blue tissue paper and layer until bottom of egg is covered and even.
Don’t worry if the top is not straight as you are about to cover this with a thin strip of red felt which is glued on as a belt.
Cut out two cardboard eyes, outline with black, and glue into position.
Cut out feet from red card and attach. For this I used sticky pads but I imagine blue-tak or similar would also work. (Free templates for the feet and eyes are available to download and can be found at the end of this post.)
And there you have it…a sp-egg-tacular spider-egg-man!
How to make Bat-egg-man:
After several unsuccessful attempts at dying a blown-out egg-shell grey, (apparently that was NEVER going to work, who knew?), I gave in and painted it using some silver fingerpaint W and I had been using to decorate an Easter garland. Allow to dry.
Next cut out some black felt shorts…
…and stick these on along with a yellow felt belt.
Draw, cut out and colour your Batman belt on card and glue this over the belt.
Cut out the front and back of your cape from back felt and then sew together.
Place on your egg and glue on googley eyes.
Finally cut out black feet from card and attach to the bottom of your egg.
And there you have it…
How to make Super-egg-man:
Dye a blown-out egg-shell blue using one cup of water mixed with one teaspoon of blue food colouring.
Allow to dry thoroughly overnight.
Cut out your felt shorts and belt and draw, cut out and colour your Superman badge.
Attach these to your egg with glue along with a pair of googley eyes.
Cut out a red felt cape and glue to the back of your egg.
Finally cut out some red card feet and attach.
And here he is…
I was about to start on a Star Wars set but figured perhaps I should go and do some housework or something!
Maybe next Easter.
HAPPY EASTER FOLKS!
