“Blue Faberge” Easter Egg

Materials Used

  • 1 smooth foam egg (about 3 inches tall)
  • 1/4 inch, light blue ribbon
  • 5mm silver hologram sequins*
  • 1/2 inch silver sequin pins*
  • 3/4 inch silver sequin pins*

  • one 5mm round iridescent clear bead
  • four 3mm round iridescent clear bead
  • two long light blue pearl ended corsage pins
  • opal (clear iridescent) glitter glue

*Purchased from Cartwright’s
**I used a special sequin tape I found in a 100 yen
shop in Japan but you can use regular flower shaped sequins.

Directions

  1. First pin the ribbon to egg as shown in the video, dividing it into 4 equal parts vertically, and then in half horizontally. The horizontal ribbon should not be exactly center. Due to the shape of the foam and the width of the ribbon this is the best placement the horizontal ribbon. It should lay flat easily.
  2. Outline the ribbon with silver hologram sequins, using 1/2 inch pins and seed beads.
  3. Paint exposed foam with glitter glue and let dry.
  4. Once glitter is completely dry, pin flower sequins in vertical stripes in the center of painted panels.
  5. Pin embellishments where the ribbon intersects.
  6. -The side embellishments are made from 3/4 inch pins with a 3mm bead, 1 flower sequin and round hologram snowflake.
    -The top cap is made from a corsage pin, 5mm bead, flower sequin, hologram snowflake and blue hologram sunburst.
    -The bottom cap is made the same as the top cap except without the 5mm bead.

If you want to use this as a Christmas ornament just add a hanging ribbon at the top.
