My Bonnie Bunny punch needle kit comes with a small painted egg
for the bunny to carry in his basket.
To make the eggs, I start with glittery styrofoam eggs from the dollar store and paint them to create primitive, speckled eggs.
Here’s how I paint the eggs that are included in the kits.
I use cream and brown craft paint,
small styrofoam eggs,
a popsicle stick, and a stiff paintbrush.
I bought the eggs at Dollar Tree.
As you can see, they are quite glittery!
I start by poking a toothpick into the end of each egg.
I have this styrofoam flat base that I use to stick the toothpicks in to hold the eggs.
This makes it possible to paint the entire egg at one time.
You could also paint the eggs on one side, let them dry,
and paint on the other side.
It takes two or three coats of paint to totally cover the blue glitter.
After the cream paint is dry,
dip the stiff bristled paint brush into the brown paint
and run the bristles across the edge of the popsicle stick
to create little paint splatters.
This takes a bit of practice to determine where the splatters are going to land!
Be sure to put something down under your work; this part is messy!
Let the eggs thoroughly dry.
The dollar store glittery styrofoam eggs have been transformed into primitive speckled eggs!
