Mr. & Mrs. Egghead - Decorating Plastic Eggs

On the agenda for the weekend is to dye Easter eggs with my preschooler. But before we tackle real eggs, I thought it might be fun to decorate some plastic ones. I saw a feature in Disney’s Family Fun magazine of plastic eggs sporting a variety of hats and thought I’d follow suit.

May I introduce Mr. and Mrs. Egghead? These two are obviously Southerners, maybe Texans, given their headgear.


I made Mr. Egghead’s cowboy hat using a paper egg carton, a small piece of cardstock and a bit of twine. I made Mrs. Egghead’s Easter bonnet from a cupcake wrapper, felt trim and small paper flowers.


The couple is sporting border stickers from Echo Park’s This and That collection. I thought the red triangle border sticker looked a bit like a bandana and suited our cowboy. I used a scallop border sticker for Mrs. Egghead to mimic a dress collar. I also used stickers and paper from This and That to build the house. The roof and door are Cosmo Cricket.


They’re just about ready for Easter, I’d say. Have you decorated eggs yet this year? If so, feel free to link them in the comments here or on the Paper Issues blog. Our current theme is Candy Shop. We’d love to see your projects. Paper Issues also has a great giveaway on its blog.  Saturday is the last day to enter.
