Fancy Feather Friends

from Spoonful

With a snip of your scissors and a bit of paint, ugly-duckling cartons blossom into graceful swan cups. Use colors that match your dyed eggs for a simple but beautiful display.

  Egg carton (paper-based works best with paint)
  Acrylic Paint
  Tacky Glue
  Colored Feathers
  Small, black seed beads
  Dyed eggs

1. For each egg holder, cut a cup from the egg carton as shown.

2. Paint the cup inside and out. Let it dry, then paint on the beak.

3. Glue on the tail feathers and bead eyes and put a dyed egg in the cup.
