To Make No-Cook Paper Mache Paste, You Will Need:

1 Cup of bleached all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups of water, cold or warm
1/2 Cup of white school glue
Mixing bowl
Whisk
Measuring cup
Pinch of salt.

Mix everything together to form a syrup-like texture – adding more flour, if needed.

Now, a few more things to add to your supply list:

  • Scrapbook paper – Spring colors and patterns – cut into about-1/2 inch strips – Depending on the length of your egg – measure it to go from the tip to tip.
  • A small egg-shaped balloon – OR – A plastic or the paper egg that will not pop open in the middle. If you are using a 2 piece of plastic egg as your base – glue the middle together so the kids don’t get frustrated with an egg that won’t stay shut! 🙂 – I used eggs that were already Paper Mache Eggs as my base/mold.
  • Little cups to hold the egg as it dries. – I found plastic shot glasses (cups) to be a perfect size. Find them in the beverage aisle
  • A clear glossy glaze spray can

If this is going to be an ornament:

  • A Brad from the scrapbooking section – I found cute butterfly brads
  • Ribbon to tie your egg

**A little tip here – The kids love to over-do the paste! If it’s getting too pasty – just take a paper towel piece, cradle the egg inside the paper towel – in the palms of your hands and squeeze out the excess paste into the towel. Good as new!

  • Place your egg in the shot glass to dry for a day!
  • Spray the dried egg with the clear glaze to take the powdered look away, and add shine.

Now if yours is an ornament:

  • Cut a couple of paper strips into 1-inch size length and dip them into the paste
  • Open your brad and hold it on the top of the egg.
