Paper Mache Photo Prop Egg
Submitted by Teri Niemeyer
Estimated Cost to Make the Item: $10.00
This Giant Photo prop egg was made with a plastic flower pot for the armature. Then layers of wadded paper were added and covered with duct tape and masking tape. Then added I added a layer or two of paper mache paper strips and paste, and finally a layer of Paper Mache Clay.
Adding crumpled paper and tape to soften the shapes and make it more comfortable for baby to sit in the Easter egg photo prop.
The large plastic flower pot completely covered with paper, duct tape and masking tape.
Covering the paper with paper strips and paste. You can find recipes for paste here.
After adding the paper mache clay (and an adorable baby), Teri Niemeyer’s Paper Mache Photo Prop Egg looked like this.
