Paper Mache Birds Egg With Nest

In this mixed media studio, Little Artists each sculpted a hollow plaster egg (paper mache balloon) to hold  a clay birds nest and a needle felted wool bird. Needle Felting is very easy, but takes concentration as to not get poked by the sharp needles. Our Little Artists took their time and did a great job being careful! They made a Crow, Peacock and two yellow Finches. IMG_2877     IMG_2872 IMG_2870

Clay nests were made to hold our eggs and felted birds.

Once the plaster was wrapped around the eggs the patterned tissue paper was decoupaged around the outside with Modge Podge.

Next we cut a hole in the front of the egg and painted the inside with acrylic paint.

Then we placed our sticks, nest and felted bird into the egg and Voila!IMG_2907 IMG_2908 IMG_2909 IMG_2914  IMG_2927
