Simple pasta can serve as a material for creating Easter handicrafts and gifts

In this master class we will tell you whichYou can make Easter pasta from pasta yourself or together with your children, and thus not only to decorate and decorate your home interior decoratively, but it's fun to spend time in the company of family and children. Today we suggest that you try to make an original Easter egg, which is decorated in a rather unusual way, not with the help of cloth, thread, paper, beads and even decoupage techniques, but with the most ordinary pasta that you can easily buy in any super market or a grocery store. We make Easter handicrafts. Photo №1 Immediately difficult to guess that this EasterThe egg is decorated with ordinary small pasta, which has the shape of asterisks, but in fact it is exactly so. A little perseverance, patience, imagination and a similar decorative egg can appear in your Easter basket, but how to do it you will learn by carefully studying the master class proposed below. For work we need:

  • one chicken egg;
  • a large needle (gypsy);
  • PVA glue;
  • small pasta in the form of asterisks;
  • tweezers;
  • brush for glue;
  • silver aerosol paint.

First step. First we will prepare the basis for our Easter decorative egg. Inside, we have an empty shell from a normal chicken egg, to prepare it, take the usual chicken raw egg and carefully make a small hole in it with a large sewing needle (gypsy) on both sides in the upper and lower parts of the shell. It should be done very carefully, so that the shell does not accidentally crack and the egg does not split. The second step. After that, placing the egg with the bottom hole above the plate, we will gently blow into the upper hole in order to displace the contents from the shell. Also for these purposes, you can take a conventional disposable medical syringe, for this you need to insert the tip of the syringe into the hole and slowly pull the inside of the liquid from the inside out. The third step. Further, it is necessary to rinse the inside of the shell under a stream of cold water or with the same syringe and dry it. It is important that the shell from the inside is clean, otherwise the remains of the egg on it will begin to decompose and produce an extremely unpleasant smell, in which case your Easter souvenir will be hopelessly spoiled. The fourth step. Once the whole eggshell is ready, you can go directly to its decoration. To do this, pre-bed on the table with a layer of polyethylene film - this can be an ordinary package, food cellophane or other material, and then pour on it small pasta sprockets and distribute them all over the surface in one layer. Fifth step. Now take the brush, moisten it in the PVA glue, which we previously slightly diluted with ordinary cold water and apply to one part of the egg shell. The sixth step. Immediately, while the glue is not frozen, we roll the smeared part of the egg in the pasta, trying to get the maximum amount of them stuck. Seventh step. Then we paste the next part of the egg with glue and again roll it in small pasta. This procedure we will continue until the large surface of the egg is pasted. Eighth step. Now leave the egg to dry in the open air. If you are in a hurry, you can accelerate this process with the help of hot air of the most common hair dryer. The ninth step. When the glue is completely dry, using a dry soft brush, slightly shake off the surface of the shell, not glued elements of stars. The tenth step. Next, we take a thin tweezer, with which it is very convenient to take one small sprocket of macaroni, we dip it into a small amount of glue and glue it to empty places on the shell. Fill in this way with all the spaces in the shell that could not be glued from the first time, and again let the glue dry completely. Eleventh step. The entire surface of the eggshell is already zadekorirovannaya, it remains only to paint it. To do this, we take an aerosol can with silver paint and cover it with the entire surface with a thin layer. You can also decorate the egg by hand using gouache or acrylic paints. The twelfth step. When the paint on the egg completely dries, the work on creating an unusual Easter egg, zadekorirovannoy pasta, can be considered finished. In addition to this option, which was discussed in our detailed master class, Easter items from pasta in the form of a decorated egg can be supplemented with other small grains such as buckwheat, millet, oat flakes, wheat, lentils, as well as poppy seeds and seeds . It turns out also very unusual, bright and beautiful. It is these Easter eggs that you can see in the photo below. We make Easter handicrafts. Photo # 2 We make Easter handicrafts.

To do this, it is suggested to cover part of the egg with small pasta asterisks, then paint the egg in the base color with acrylic paint and let it dry completely. After this, on a certain part of the shell, with the help of a brush, it is necessary to apply a conventional PVA glue. It is desirable that the glue was applied in a certain form, for example, in the form of an oval. Then, you need to densely cover the entire area with a shiny powder and wait for about five to ten minutes, then gently blow off the shiny pieces that are not stuck. We make Easter handicrafts. Photo №5 After the glue is completely dry, you onlyremains to re-fill the remaining uncovered parts of the surface of the egg. To shine not crumbled and not taken in hand, you can additionally cover the whole egg with a thin layer of acrylic lacquer, which not only protects it from minor damage, but also gives it a beautiful sheen.
