My favorite Easter craft as a child was making my own diorama eggs. I loved paper mache, and each year I would make my own paper mache egg (using a balloon, newspaper, and homemade paste) that I would fill with little toy chicks and plastic eggs. I decided to make a grown up version of my eggs this year, and styled my paper mache eggs to look like sugar eggs. Thanks to Mod Podge’s Collage Clay it’s easy to recreate the look of sugar and icing without the calories (or the sugar ants!)

- Egg Cups
- Chalky Finish Paint
- Mod Podge Collage Clay
- Flocked Rabbits
- Festive Yarn
- Miniature Baskets
Step two: Trace a circle or oval onto the painted egg and cut out the shape. I used a razor to start cutting and then used small scissors to finish cutting.
Step three: Use Mod Podge Collage Clay to embellish the egg. You use it the same way you use an icing bag. Choose a tip (each box comes with 4 tips) and pipe the clay onto the egg. I started with the star tip but changed my mind and decided to use the ribbon tip to create a ruffle like design. I “folded” the clay to create this effect.
Step four: Once the clay has hardened, fill the egg with yarn, bunnies, and baskets.
