DIY Flower Covered Easter Egg

Truth be told, I’ve had the idea for this DIY Flower Covered Easter Egg since last Spring.

For those of you who’ve been following TCG since then, you may remember these DIY Monogrammed Easter Eggs and how I used some of the same flowers from that project to make a hydrangea inspired egg for my Mom.

The hydrangea egg was such a big hit, my only regret from that project was not having enough time to create a DIY flowered covered Easter egg in pink.

So, I stored the idea away in my planner and waited for Spring to arrive again.

Well, last week we started pulling together all the elements needed for our Spring home and porch tour and I knew immediately I wanted to find a way to incorporate the eggs I’d waited so long to craft.  

Thankfully, Michaels still carried the flower embellishments I had envisioned for this DIY flower covered Easter egg.  

Honestly, this project doesn’t really need a tutorial, but I know a guide is always helpful.

Here’s a look at how to make a DIY flower covered Easter Eggs this season…

DIY Flower Covered Easter Egg Supplies:

  • Paper Mache Egg – We found this one at Goodwill, but they also sell them at Hobby Lobby
  • Small Paper Flower Embellishments – We found these at Michaels
  • Glue Gun
  • Glue Sticks
  • Pink Craft Paint and Paintbrush for application, optional
  • Ribbon, optional

DIY Flower Covered Easter Egg Steps:

Gather your supplies and make sure your work surface is free from dirt and debris.

Then using caution and care, prepare your glue gun so the glue will have time to warm up.

Paint your paper mâché egg, if desired, and allow the paint to dry completely.

We chose not to paint our egg because I like this color of paper mâché.

Next, group your paper flowers by color.

This will help when you’re in the crafting zone and need to grab a specific color quickly.

Once your glue gun and glue are ready, use caution and care as both will be hot.

Place a dot of glue onto the paper mâché egg.

Then add a paper flower on top of the glue dot.

Continue to glue the flower embellishments around the paper mâché egg until you’ve covered the entire egg, or until you’ve created a pattern you desire.

This package comes with 120 flower embellishments, and it covered about half our egg which is 4.5 inches by 6 inches.

So, if you want to cover the entire egg, you’ll need at least 2 packages of 120 count flower embellishments.

Another thing to keep in mind, is that while the embellishments themselves are super light, together they may weigh the front of your egg down if you decided to only cover half the egg.

In addition, don’t forget to leave the bottom part of your egg bare, so it will have a platform of sorts to stand on.

Once the glue on your DIY flower covered Easter egg has dried and the embellishments have been completely secured, add a ribbon if desired.
