DIY : Recycled Easter Eggs

     Have you ever had the lip-smacking kinder JOY chocolate - the one that contains two acorn-shaped coated wafer biscuits in a milky spread with a surprise toy inside.... In that case, have you noticed that the chocolate comes in an egg-shaped case....?!?!.. Won't that be perfect for a recycled Easter Craft... Well., I had a few wrappers, with which I was experimenting during the weekend... which resulted in this...


Guess, if you are impressed with this craft - may be you will think twice next time before throwing away those beautifully shaped wrappers... ;-) ;-) ... !! Now to the procedure....

Materials Needed :
Kinder Joy chocolate wrapper  - 2 (for 1 egg)
Fevicol Easy Flow Adhesive  (I used the one that is available in a squeezy bottle in order to avoid unnecessary mess)
Acrylic Colour ( Any colour of your choice)
Glitter colours or any embellishments

Kinder Joy Chocolate - one half of contains the chocolate
and the other contains small toys ( the ones you see behind the chocolate)

 Apply fevicol on the egg-shaped wrapper's surface ; Spread the fevicol evenly on the surface with the help of a thin stick or skewer. Do the same on both halves of the wrapper. Leave it to dry completely. In the above picture you can see that one half is dried completely ( right side one). 
 Apply a coat of acrylic colour of your choice.

Apply another coat of paint so that the surface
underneath is not visible.

You can apply the same color on both halves or
different shades - it all depends on your choice...

Glue both the halves with the help of fevicol or any adhesive.Thats it... Easy peasy .. Done... It will be all over in 15- 20 mins.Now, all you have to do, is to arrange your eggs in a basket or put it in an egg holder... !! - You can also embellish the eggs with glitter or other designs. or even spray paint it......
TIP : You can also leave little knick-knacks inside if you are planning to give this as a gift.
