Tin Foil and Tissue Paper Easter Egg Craft for Kids

Tin foil and tissue paper Easter Egg Craft – a fun and pretty Easter craft for kids to make!

These eggs are one of my favourite Easter crafts for kids to make.  I love how delicate and pretty they look. Hand them in a window, string a garland, or scatter them on your Easter dinner table.  Your children will be so proud to see their handiwork displayed at the holiday.

Tin foil and tissue paper Easter egg craft for kids - Happy Hooligans

To make this Easter egg craft you’ll need:

glue - cardboard egg - tissue paper-craft scraps

  • medium weight cardboard (thicker than a cereal box)
  • tin-foil
  • 1 inch squares of tissue paper in various colours
  • gems, jewels, ribbon, rick-rack etc (or whatever you have on hand) to decorate your egg
  • mod podge (or slightly watered down white glue)
  • glue

Making your egg ornaments:

Cut out your cardboard eggs, and wrap them in tinfoil.  The Hooligans always love that part – wrapping and pressing and scrunching the tin-foil tight to the cardboard.

With a paintbrush, cover the surface of your egg with mod-podge.  You can make your own mod-podge by stirring a couple of drops of water into some white glue.

Press squares of tissue paper onto the mod-podge, using the paintbrush to smooth down the edges.  You can go over the tissue with a layer of mod-podge, but you don’t have to.

When the mod-podge has dried, decorate egg with your jewels, gems and ribbons.
