I made these large eggs, per Martha Stewart's directions, to use as Easter baskets for my girls away at college. Using mod podge and the paper mache method, I layered three layers of paper over balloons, tissue paper for the inside, newspaper as an inner lining and the pretty wrapping paper on the outside. After they dried, I cut them open to resemble cracked eggs.
As an extra, non-Martha touch, I added silk gerbera daisies to the tops.
Added these and Easter grass.
Tied them up with tulle and seam binding and shipped them off to the colleges. I didn't show you sooner since I wanted to be sure they had arrived in the mail. To my girls and fiance, with love, momma.
