There is not that much time left till Easter and we are going to make some home decore. This time I will show how to make a quilled easter egg.  

To make a season's present we need the following tools and materials:

  • egg billet;
  • a set of quilling paper, 3 mm wide 15 cm long, and 5 thick wide and 50 cm long
  • yellow, blue and pink seed beads 
  • scissors;
  • PVA glue
  • a toothpick.
  • additionally - white acrylic paint

There is no need to buy expensive tools for this tutorial, all we need is just a toochpick

Take the egg billet. It can be a styrofoam or a wooden billet, but you can also make it from a papier mache. Also you can use a real egg, preferrably organic, since it's egg shell is much solid. In this case the egg should be treated to remove the inner part. Using an awl, make two holes on top and the bottonm of the egg, and carefully blow out the whites and yolk. Wash the shell with running water and let it to dry.
If you use a billet, cover it with white acrylic paing and let it to dry 
Now, once we have the egg ready, start making quilling elements. Using a toothpick, make a loose coil with a 3 mm wide pink paper. Coils we make should be 1 cm wide
