Easter Egg

Post by lyndaejane on Thu 16 Apr 2015 - 13:17

The monthly competition one month at Essex Handicrafts Association was an Easter Egg. I bought this cheap polystyrene egg at a pound shop: it was covered in pale green organza and had some dreadful decorations, which I removed. Just used beads, ribbons and sequins that I had on hand to decorate: don't know what the base was, but it was plastic so I covered it with chocolate foil (before I had any gold leaf!).
