Create some Easter decorations from plaster of Paris. Hang them up on a cut tree branch indoors or anywhere in the garden. I think they look pretty left undececorated but they are also great fun for kids to paint and are ideal treasures for an Easter egg hunt.

Materials
Plaster of Paris
Water
Easter egg chocolate mould (half egg in each mould cavity)
Ribbon
Strong glue

Look out for cheap Easter-themed chocolate moulds in the shops in the run up to Easter


Method
Mix the plaster of Paris according to the pack instructions. I used 1 part water to 2 parts plaster. Make up the mix in a disposable tub which you can throw away afterwards rather than washing left over plaster down the sink.

Plaster of Paris is surprisingly cheap and easy to use


Fill the Easter egg chocolate mould with the plaster and tap to release any trapped air bubbles.

Let the plaster set for about 12 hours then pop the shapes out. Leave the pieces to dry out fully for at least another 12 hours.

When dry, cover the flat pieces of each half egg with strong glue. Press a loop of ribbon onto one egg half and then press the other matching egg half on top. Press tightly then leave to dry.

When dry, hang your Easter egg decorations on branches. Paint with acrylic paint if you prefer colourful eggs.
