Ever since I was little girl, I loved to save the pretty foils that covered chocolate eggs. I would flatten them out and collect them in empty tins. Later I would open those tins and view my foils – little treasures, some still smelling faintly of yummy chocolate!
Here I have recreated those eggs but on a larger, more permanent scale. The nice thing about these decorative Easter eggs is that you can enjoy them year after year! Learn how to make these foil-wrapped Easter eggs below.
You will need:
Wide double-sided tape
Heavy-duty kitchen aluminum foil
Bright permanent markers
Soft bathroom tissue
Cover your eggs with the tape. Then wrap with the foil, covering the tape. Cut off excess foil. Roll the eggs onto a hard surface to smooth out the creases and hard edges of the foil. if you press too hard and tear the foil, just add some tape and more foil.
Grab two tissues and a pen. Place one tissue in your hand to hold the egg. With your other hand, scribble the egg with the marker in small sections. Quickly use the other tissue to blend the ink. Continue, working in sections, overlapping the color until you are happy with the shade. If you feel an egg color is too dark, go over it in sections with a lighter shade and a clean tissue to blend.
If you need to start over with a egg, you can use rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover.
