We’ve decorated eggs from a far-away galaxy, eggs as fruits, and even eggs as the famous San Francisco Painted Ladies — this year we’re taking a more relaxed vibe. We introduce you to our most relaxed eggs dressed in pool floats sitting by the pool, soaking up some rays. (FYI: We are jealous of these guys.) These Easter eggs are a breeze to make and you only need one material — Sculpey clay! Follow along below to make these floats for yourself.
- Create long cylinder ropes of clay that are 1/4 inch in diameter. Wrap around egg and secure to create a loop.
- Use a smaller cylindrical piece to create the neck and head — attach onto the body.
- Attach clay on the sides to create wings and on the back to create a tail.
- Use other colors of clay to create the face and mane of the unicorn.
Roll out a cylinder rope of clay that is about 1/4 inch thick and wrap around the body of the egg. Use extra clay to create the neck, head, wings, and tail of the swan.
Create an orange beak and black eyes on the face to finish off the swan.
Follow the instructions above to create the flamingo’s body out of hot pink clay. Use a small amount of black and white clay to create the beak and eyes.
The Unicorn has the same body as the swan, but this time, don’t add on a white tail. Next, create the mane of the unicorn by rolling out clay in different colors and then twisting the colorful ropes together.
Attach the rainbow rope to the unicorn body as a mane and tail.
Add a horn and eyes to give your unicorn life.
Keep the pool floats around the wooden eggs and pop them into a 275-degree-Fahrenheit oven for 15 minutes.
Palm Springs vibes all the way.
These Easter eggs are living their best life for sure.
