Amy from Make Parties has done it again with another awesome Easter idea. For our fellow Game of Thrones lovers, we think your Easter is about to be 10x more amazing thanks to Amy’s genius craft project.
This idea could also totally work for dressing up regular choccie eggs if you can’t get your hands on one of these great wooden eggs in time (minus the paint step of course). All you’d need is some washi tape!
Imagine giving these Easter gifts to your friends who are in love with the show – I would die!!
Over to you, Amy.
EASTER IS COMING, and so is the long-awaited return of the epic Game of Thrones! Huzzah! In honour of the imminent arrival of these two things close to my heart, here is a very spesh DIY to get you in the mood…
- 3 hollow wooden eggs (I got mine from Blank Goods)
- Acrylic paint (I used gold, red, and green)
- Washi tape in gold, red, and green
- and some crazy things to fill them with
Start by painting your eggs in the colours you’ve chosen. I’ve chosen some pretty bright colours, but you can of course be a little more true to the story if you would prefer! Completely up to your taste. Leave them to dry for a couple of minutes.
NEXT! Cut a bunch of 4cm lengths of washi tape.
Fold the bottom of each of them over back onto themselves, leaving about 1cm of sticky showing, and you’ll end up with a flap. Cut a “dragon scale” shape (that is definitely a thing!) into the flap.
Stick the washi tape dragon scale down very firmly. It should be hanging off the edge. Continue along the edge by overlapping the scales a few millimetres or so each time.
When you get back to the start, slightly peel back the first dragon scale you stuck down, and stick the last dragon scale down underneath it. Firmly press down the first row of dragon scales.
Start the next row up by placing the point of the dragon scale in-between two of the points on the first row, but a few millimetres up. Keep going around the egg, and finish the row off like last time.
Do another row in the same way.
Now cut your dragon scales a little shorter, leaving less of a flap.
Stick the shorter scales on as usual. You’ll notice you’ll start needing less and less for each row. My rows of dragon scales went super wonky – but that’s okay! Don’t stress about keeping them too even. Beauty isn’t symmetrical, or something.
Cut your dragon scales shorter again, and do the next two rows. Remember to keep pressing each scale down really firmly.
You’re nearly there! Cut one longer strip of washi tape, and fold each end over onto itself. Cut both flaps into scales.
Now stick it right on the top, and you’re done!
Fill your eggs with something ridiculous and try and find some kind of rad “chest” to display them in for the ultimate in GOT-related Easter wonder.
