Step 1: Making the Egg Basket
° Inflate the ballon and secure the ballon on one of the bowls
° Mix 1 part water with 3 parts glue in the other bowl
° Now soak the reel of thread in the glue and start wrapping it around the ballon
° Let it dry for a day and pop the ballon
° Now cut a hole in the front of the egg basket.
Step 2: Preparing the Paper Clay
° Remove the toilet from the roll and soak it in a bowl with water until its completely soaked
° Squeeze out the toilet paper and place the pulp in a separate bowl
° Measure 1 1/2 cups of toilet paper pulp.
° Now add the remaining ingredients and blend(except the varnish)
° Mix the clay until its smooth
Step 3: HOW TO MAKE SMALL EGGS
° Take a small amount of paper clay and start molding it in an oval shape. Make lots of them.
° Let them dry over night.
° Now sand the eggs to make them smooth.
° Similarly u can make the bunny.
° Now paint your eggs and bunny as u like...use your imagination
Step 4: Decoration
° Apply the fabric glue on the lace and start sticking it on the rim of the hole
° Stick the glue on the bows and glue them the lace
Note: I used a flower punch machine to punch flowers and glued them all over the egg
Step 5: Finnishing!!
° For the base for the eggs i made a nest by using paper strips and stick them criss cross inside a bowl and leave it for an hour...you can use a ready made nest or clay for the base
° And voila your easter egg basket is ready
