Paper Mache Eggs - Pack of 6, Michaels

Mod Podge - Michaels

Page(s) of French Script printed from your printer- I was inspired by the 'Le Poeme' Rug in theBallard Designs catalogue.


This rug features script from the poem La Cigale et La Fourmi (The Grasshopper and The Ant) written in the 17th century by Jean de La Fontaine.  This poem tells the story of an industrious ant, a carefree cricket and the end of summer.  I found the poem here.  I copied the French poem into a Word document and then changed it to a script font that I love called 'Jellyca Gare de Chambord' which you can download for free here at fonts.com.

This is what the 'Jellyca Gare de Chambord' Font looks like, isn't it cool?
La cigale ayant chanté
Tutorial:


After you have printed the poem, cut out each line of words into strips.

With a paintbrush apply Mod Podge to back of paper strip and apply to egg.

Press firmly to make sure all edges are glued on.

Keep applying the paper strips until the egg is covered.

You're done - Enjoy!

Here are my eggs all finished and placed on a bed of Reindeer Moss (I love this stuff - I used it to make my DIY Reindeer Moss Spheres).
