Tissue Paper Easter Eggs

The kids will love making these brightly colored Tissue Paper Easter Eggs hanging from your windows as the sun shines through.  These also make pretty package and card decorations.

Trivia: Tissue paper is a thin, relatively strong, translucent paper made for use in crafts as well as for wrapping and other applications. Some is coated with wax so that, when it is heated with a warm iron, pieces will stick together.

Supplies

Instructions

To make these Tissue Paper Easter Eggs, print egg pattern on black construction paper. The pattern should show up enough to cut out. otherwise print on white paper as a pattern.

Fold on dotted line.

Cut the inside egg out and discard. Cut along the other lines and you will have three egg shaped frames.

Glue different colors of tissue paper inside each frame. We tore the paper into shapes and stripes for a more interesting look.

Glue eggs together, overlapping the edges.

Make a hanger out of a pipe cleaner loop. Glue to the back.
