Making Easter eggs for the past month or so means we鈥檝e been on the hunt for new Easter egg ideas to keep you egg-cited about the big day (April 5, btw鈥 need supplies? Visit the B+C shop for all the Easter gifts you need to fill those baskets!) We clicked across this DIY for covering eggs in polymer clay and decided to give it a try. What we found out was that covering these Easter decorations in Sculpey gives you the ULTIMATE brightly colored eggs, without having to bust out the dye. Bright colors FTW!

Stack the cylinders on top of one another to form a larger grouping. Since the strands are very long, cut in half and add on to your preexisting group.

Want to step up your Sculpey game? Check out this tutorial. It took a while to master the art of creating flowers with the clay, and to be honest, we鈥檙e still not completely there. Make sure you have an extremely sharp X-Acto when cutting the clay. This will help give a clean flower design and not pull the petals in wonky directions.
