Easter Egg Centerpiece

gather this:
5 - Styrofoam Egg (different sizes) (I got mine at Michaels)
Pastel Tissue Papers – (less than 1 sheet per egg)

FolkArt Extreme Glitter – Hologram 2782
Clay Pot
FolkArt Acrylic Paint – 480 Titanium White

5 Cut Pieces of Dowel Rods
Large Styrofoam Ball
FolkArt Acrylic Paint – 480 317 Morning Sun

1. Cut the tissue paper into small squares. Apply a thick coat of Mod Podge onto the egg. Place the tissue paper squares onto the egg. Continue until the entire egg is covered. Add a topcoat of Mod Podge to the egg. Smooth the papers with your hands. Set aside and allow to dry. Add a second layer of paper if desired. Continue until all the eggs are covered.

2. Coat the dried eggs with a layer of Extreme Glitter.

3. Paint the exterior and top interior of the clay pot with white paint. Allow to dry. Add a coat of Crackle Medium. Allow to dry 4 hours in order for the crackle to properly work. Once dry, apply a coat of peony paint to the rim and inside edge of the pot. Work quickly and in one direction for proper crackling. Paint the base of the pot with sawgrass paint. Allow to dry.

4. Hot glue a large Styrofoam ball in the base of the pot. Secure the 5 dowel rods into the Styrofoam with hot glue. Paint the dowels with morning sun. Pierce the base of each egg onto a dowel rod. Use the largest egg in the center. Hot glue to secure.

5. Hot glue moss to the top of the Styrofoam ball and to the base of the eggs. Glue flowers and gems to the front of the clay pot and to the base of the eggs.
