Mickey Easter Egg

What You’ll Need

  • Hardboiled white egg (or wooden egg), painted black
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard tissue tube (1 1/2 inches or so in diameter)
  • Black craft paint and paintbrush
  • Strip of red craft paper (1 1/2 – by 5-inches)
  • 2 small white buttons (about 3/8 inch in diameter)
  • Glue dots
  • Cardstock, black and white

How To Make It

  1. Cut a 2-inch section from the cardboard tissue tube, paint it black, and let it to dry. Note: Another option is to make your own tube by rolling up and stapling a strip of black cardstock.
  2. For Mickey’s shorts, wrap the red craft paper around the bottom of the tube and glue the ends together to hold them in place. Glue the white buttons to the front of the shorts.
  3. Place the painted egg atop the tube, with the narrower end down. Then print the template on a sheet of white cardstock. Cut out the Mickey face and use glue dots to stick the upper portion to the front of the egg, but allow the chin to extend slightly over the outer tube.
  4. For the finishing touch, use the ear template piece to cut out a pair of Mickey ears from black cardstock. Fold the ear tabs, as shown, and glue them to the top of the egg so that the ears stand upright.

  2. Pencil a pair of narrow oval eyes (about 5/8-inch-long and ¼-inch-wide), eyebrows, and a curvy feather line on the upper egg, and then trace over the lines and color in the eyes with marker. Use the tip of a toothpick dipped in white craft paint to add a gleam to each eye. Set the egg atop the tube with the narrower end down.
  3. Print the template on white cardstock and cut out the pieces. Glue the center portion of the beak piece to the front of the egg just below the eyes, but leave the sides free to extend beyond the width of the egg. Glue the red bow tie to the tube at the bottom of the V.
  4. For Donald’s beret, use the hat template piece to cut out a circle from the felt. Stitch around the perimeter of the circle, as shown. Then pull the thread tight and knot it.

Pooh Easter Egg

What You’ll Need:

  • Wooden egg, ideally with a flat bottom (sold in craft stores or online)
  • Small piece of a soft craft sponge
  • Yellowish-gold acrylic craft paint
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard tissue tube (1½ inches or so in diameter)
  • Red acrylic craft paint or red craft paper
  • Yellowish-gold, golden-brown, and black craft paper scraps
  • Fine-tipped black permanent marker
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Tacky glue and small stiff paintbrush to apply it
  • Glue sealer, such as Mod Podge, and a soft paintbrush for applying it

How To Make It

  1. Sponge-paint the egg yellowish-gold, and then set it aside to dry.
  2. Cut a 2-inch section from the cardboard tissue tube. Paint the tube red and set it aside to dry, or cover it with a strip of glued-on red craft paper.
  3. Print the template and use the pieces for cutting out the shapes in the specified colors of craft paper. Glue the inner ear pieces atop the ears, and then set them aside for the glue to dry.
  4. Use the black marker to color two tiny round eyes on the eye-backing rectangle. With one hand, hold the rectangle in place against the face of the egg (the top edge of the paper should be ½-inch from the pointed top of the egg), and lightly pencil a pair of eyebrows right above the paper and a curved “nose wrinkle” right below it. Remove the paper, and carefully trace over the pencil lines with black marker. If you mess up, you can blot more paint over the line (it may take a 2 or 3 coats to cover), and then try again.
  5. Glue the eye-backing rectangle in place on the egg. Next, glue on the nose just 1/16 inch or so below the nose wrinkle line. Let the glue dry.
  6. Lightly pencil a broad smile on the egg (the lowest point should be about ½ inch from the nose and ¾ inch from the bottom of the egg). Trace over the pencil line with the black marker.
  7. Brush a protective coat of glue sealer on the egg, going right over the paper, to seal it and to give it a little sheen. Seal the assembled ears as well. Let the sealer dry (this won’t take long).
  8. Fold back the ear tabs, and then glue the tabs to the top of the egg. Let the glue dry completely. Set the finished egg atop the red tissue tube stand, and it’s ready to display.

Piglet Easter Egg

What You’ll Need

  • Hardboiled white egg (or wooden egg)
  • Small piece of a soft craft sponge
  • Soft pink acrylic craft paint
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard tissue tube (1½ inches or so in diameter)
  • Tacky glue and small stiff paintbrush to apply it
  • Craft paper (medium pink, dark pink, and magenta)
  • Glue sealer, such as Mod Podge, and a soft paintbrush for applying it
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Fine-tipped permanent markers (black and red)
  • Pink yarn or string

How To Make It

  1. Sponge-paint the egg soft pink, and then set it aside to dry.
  2. Cut a 1/4-inch length from the cardboard tissue tube, and cover it with a strip of glued-on magenta craft paper.
  3. Print the template and use the pieces for cutting out the shapes in the specified colors of craft paper. Glue the inner ear pieces atop the ears, and then set them aside for the glue to dry. Once it has, brush a protective coat of glue sealer on all three pieces.
  4. Glue the nose onto the face of the egg, positioning the upper edge of the paper 1 inch from the top of the egg. Let the glue dry.
  5. Lightly pencil two tiny eyes right above the nose (about 1/16 inch), spacing them about 3/8 inch apart. Add short arched eyebrows 1/4 inch above the eyes. Then draw on Piglet’s grin (about 3/4 inch wide and positioned so that the lowest point is about 1/4 inch below the nose and 1 inch above the bottom of the egg). Once you have the pencil lines the way you want them, carefully trace over the eyes and eyebrows with black marker and the grin with red marker.
  6. Brush a protective coat of glue sealer on the egg, going right over the paper, to seal it and to give it a little sheen.
  7. When the sealer is dry (this shouldn’t take long), fold back the lower edges of the assembled ears, and then glue the folded portion of each ear to the top of the egg. Let the glue dry completely.
  8. For the finishing touch, add stripes to the cardboard tube stand by snuggly wrapping lengths of yarn around it and gluing the ends in place on the back. Set the finished egg atop the stand, and your Piglet Easter decoration is ready to display.

Eeyore Easter Egg

What You’ll Need:

  • Wooden egg (tan or unpainted)
  • Masking tape
  • Small piece of a soft craft sponge
  • Blue acrylic craft paint
  • Scissors
  • Cardboard tissue tube
  • Glue sealer, such as Mod Podge, and a soft paintbrush for applying it
  • Craft paper (blue and magenta)
  • Tacky glue and small stiff paintbrush to apply it
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Black fine-tipped permanent marker
  • Black yarn

How To Make It:

  1. Wrap a piece of masking tape around the lower portion of the egg, positioning the upper edge ¾ inch from the bottom of the egg, and making sure it is well stuck. Sponge-paint the egg blue, and then set it aside to dry. (Tip: A piece of rolled paper secured with a staple or tape, makes a handy stand to set the egg on while the paint dries.)
  2. Cut a 2-inch length from the cardboard tissue tube. Then cut the tube up the back, and trim the upper front edge to create a shallow scallop shape, as shown. This will allow the rounded bottom of the egg (Eeyore’s muzzle) to show when the decoration is assembled.
  3. Overlap the ends of the cardboard and staple them together to create a 1¼-inch-wide tube. Paint the tube blue, and set it aside to dry.
  4. Print the template. Lightly brush a coat of glue sealer over the pair of eyes and let the sealer dry (this shouldn’t take long). Meanwhile, use the other template pieces as patterns for cutting out the specified shapes from colored craft paper.
  5. Glue the magenta inner ear pieces atop the blue outer ears. Once the glue is dry, fold each ear in half, as shown. Then fold down the top of each ear to make a ¼-inch tab.
  6. Refold the ears and trim the upper portion a bit, as shown, so that it will be narrower where it attaches to the head.
  7. Peel the tape off of the egg. Lightly pencil a vertical line on the face of the egg, starting at the very top and extending all the way to the bottom. Carefully trace over the line with black marker.
  8. Cut out the eyes and glue them onto the egg, positioning them so that the lower edges are ¼ inch from the unpainted muzzle and the sides are 1/8 inch from the center line.
  9. Pencil on the other facial features: eyebrows ¼ inch above the eyes, a pair of muzzle wrinkles and a short straight mouth 1/8 inch and 5/8 inch below the muzzle line respectively, and a pair of small oval nostrils spaced 3/8 inch apart. Carefully trace over the lines with black marker.
  10. Brush a protective coat of glue sealer on the egg, going right over the paper, to seal it and to give it a little sheen. Seal the surface of the tube and both sides of the ears, as well.
  11. For Eeyore’s forelock, use a piece of black yarn to tie together several other short lengths of black yarn. Unravel the yarn ends and trim them to a desirable length. Then glue the bunch to the top of the egg.
  12. Finally, glue the tops of the ears to the sides of the egg, as shown. Set the egg atop the tube stand, and your Eeyore decoration is ready for Easter.
