INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. If desired, mix (2) parts Everlasting to (1) part paint color. (The colors shown are Enchanted, Inheritance, Innocence, Lace, and Vintage.)
  2. Using a 1" flat brush, paint about (6) eggs in each of the color mixes.
  3. After letting the eggs dry completely, use Cocoa to speckle the eggs with a fan brush. (Load the brush and run your finger through the brush. This will cause the paint to splatter on the egg.) Add as much speckling as desired. Let dry.
  4. For added durability, apply Ultra-Matte Varnish to each of the eggs.
  5. Adhere the eggs onto the grapevine wreath using a hot glue gun: Start with one color and space it evenly around the wreath. Add more colors filling in the empty spaces as you go, so that the colors are evenly spaced around the wreath.
  6. Use a glue gun to attach moss in the empty spaces around the eggs. Add as much moss as needed to achieve the desired look.
  7. If needed, tie a piece of twine at the point you would like it hung from.
