Velvet Floral Egg Box for Easter


SuppliesPapier Mache Egg Boxes, Velvet Ribbon, Velvet Flowers, Velvet Leaves, Acrylic Craft Paint, Paint Brush, Scissors, Glue (like Aleene's)

Step 1: Paint both halves of your egg box with two light coats of acrylic craft paint.  Let dry.  We chose light pistacchio green paint to give our eggs a botanical Victorian look. 

Step 2: Pair up your velvet ribbons with leaves and flowers and practice ideal positioning.  It's helpful to have an idea of how your egg will look finished.

Step 3: Glue a length of velvet ribbon along the edges of each egg half.  Let dry.  We started and ended ours at the bottom (narrow end) of the egg.  Let dry.

Step 4: Glue leaves and flowers to the top of the egg. We decided on placement first, then glued down one leaf followed by the second leaf with flower wires gently tucked under.  Let dry.

Tips: You can leave part of the wire stem attached to each leaf -- be sure to bend it gently to match the curve of the egg before glueing -- or gently remove it completely.

We cut our flower stems leaving 1-2" of length in order to be able to tuck the stems under one of the leaves when glueing.  Once dry, you can manipulate your flowers slightly.

If your egg box seems to fit together unevenly after painting, position it as you wish and wrap a few rubber bands around it to help it hold position and regain a tighter fit.

We put our flowers and leaves on the top of the egg -- the half with no liner along the inside edge.

Don't limit yourself just to velvet: this project would look exquisite with a wide range of flower and leaf combos.
