  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include the drying time for the paint.
  • 2
    Cut the dowel to 12 inch then paint it Hunter Green and let dry.
  • 3
    Paint all but two of the eggs with the colors provided Hunter Green, Yellow, Pink, Violet, Orange and Sky Blue -- so that you have two eggs of each color. Let dry. Set the two non-painted eggs aside for later use. Decorate the rest of the eggs with the various colors of ribbon - Yellow, Pink, Light Orchid and Light Blue - tying small bows at the tops. Glue a baking cup to the bottom of each egg. Cut lengths of the Flamingo and Light Lime yarn nd tuck into the muffin liners around the eggs using low-temp glue to secure.
  • 4
    Insert one end of the dowel into the center of the 8 inch disc using low-temp glue gun and glue sticks to secure. Thread the two un-decorated eggs onto the dowel, wide end first. Push them all the way down the dowel to the disc and secure with glue. The two eggs will support the second tier of the tower. Now thread the center of the 6 inch disc onto the dowel and secure with glue at the top of the eggs.
  • 5
    Insert toothpicks through the baking cups about halfway into the bottoms of the decorated eggs. Trim the toothpick to about 1/2 inch so they will not go through the disc. Glue the eggs evenly spaced around both discs and glue one onto the top of the dowel.
  • 6
    Glue some pieces of ribbon around the outside edges of the discs. Glue in small tufts of Yellow, Pink, Lavender and Baby Blue tissue paper or Flamingo and Light Lime yarn to fill in between the eggs.
