INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Paint half of each egg with the above colors and place in bottle tops to dry fully between coats.

  1. Use at least 11 to 12 eggs, but more can be used for a fuller effect. Start painting half of each egg using a 1" flat brush. Use Pink Cadillac, Orange Sherbet, Canary, Lavender Fields, and Baby Blue, painting two or three eggs in each color. Let dry.
    Step 0 Example
  2. When dry, paint the remaining part of each egg. (Apply additional coats as needed for full coverage, allowing to dry completely between coats.)
    Step 1 Example
  3. Squeeze out some E6000 Glue, dip a toothpick into the glue, and distribute a thin line of glue around the middle of the entire egg. Place the natural straw colored twine on top of the glue. Repeat above and below the natural twine with a colored twine.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Adhere another row of color twine on top and bottom of the existing twine. Let all glue dry completely.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Start working ivy greenery into the the grapevine wreath, holding in place with E6000 Glue.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Thin out the ivy with scissors. Add a small amount of baby's breath flowers throughout the ivy. Glue down some of the ivy and the baby's breath with E6000 Glue.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Start to glue the decorated eggs onto the wreath, as desired. (Some eggs will need to be held in place until the E6000 sets.) Continue around the entire wreath. Let set overnight before moving.
