Faberge Eggs

Here is a beautiful decoration you can make with plastic Easter eggs. These are actually a lot easier to make than they look.  I created these Faberge Eggs for my Easter TV segment last year but I loved them so much, I am going to use then as a decorative accent in my house. I found some over-sized plastic eggs at the craft store, and used them to make my Faberge eggs. You can use your smaller plastic eggs to make the same designs.

I have also created Faberge Egg gift designs on small oval gift boxes. They are perfect at an Easter brunch place setting or for a special gift. Click here to learn how to make Faberge Egg Gift Boxes.

Here are the large eggs I bought at Michael’s. I have also seen them at Hobby Lobby too! If I wasn’t going on TV and needed a large centerpiece, I would have made the smaller version.

Here is what they looked like on my TV table setup. As you can see, they are very large.

Blue Faberge Egg

This Faberge inspired egg was made from an egg that was already blue and glittery.

  1. Glue strips to the glittery ribbon onto the egg with craft glue. You can lightly draw the lines first with pencil for accuracy.
  2. Attach a larger ribbon to cover the center seam and glue a large decoration to the top.
  3. Use gold lid from a spay container. I used a lid from spay paint and glued ribbon around the top and bottom edged to make a base.

    Hi Gina-
    These are great and something I have been wanting to make. I have all of the materials except for stands…where did you get your decorative stands?
    Thanks for posting!

  2. Gina says:

    They were stands I already had from glass decorative bowls I think I bought at Pier 1 and a craft store along time ago. You can probably find something like that a either a Thrift Store or craft store.

    These look wonderful! I would like to make some–Lord knows I have enough supplies to make some. ***If you go to NYC, be sure to go to The Metropolitan Museum of Art and find the Faberge eggs. They have a couple of display cases full of them. VERY COOL.
