Easter Craft:Sp-EGG-tacular Superheroes!

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

Happy Easter!

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.)

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…

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.
