Easter is approaching quickly, and it’s high time to start thinking about Easter decorations. Why not try making some colorful paper eggs to brighten up your home this year?
You can make these paper eggs with cardstock paper, magazine paper, or even newspaper. In fact, I found that the newspaper eggs turned out even better than the colorful ones.
As I mentioned earlier, this year I will be releasing more craft and DIY projects in addition to my sewing tutorials. This Easter egg craft is a treat for both kids and adults alike!
So, just follow this tutorial, gather your supplies, and you’ll be ready to hop into Easter!

Gather your supplies.
For the first step, you will be needing your pair of scissors, cardstock papers, and the egg template. Trace the egg on each cardstock paper.
Cut out the eggs from all four cardstock papers.
You will need 6 from each.
After cutting the eggs, fold each egg lengthwise in half.
Repeat on all the egg pieces.
Put 2 same-colored eggs side by side (I picked the arctic blue shade). Apply glue along the entire half of both eggs and glue them together.
It should look like this.
Next, get a piece of a different colored egg (I used denim blue paper). Apply glue on the other side of the arctic blue egg and glue the denim blue egg onto it.
Glue another piece of denim blue to the left side of the denim blue egg.
Now, attach a different colored egg ( I used sky blue paper) to the unattached side of the denim blue egg.
Keep gluing the eggs to each other until you glued all 24 eggs to each other. Make sure to alternate the colors.
After gluing all 24 eggs, secure the shape of the egg by gluing the free side of the last piece to the free side of the first piece.
The formed egg should look like this.
Decorate the egg by cinching a decorative ribbon in the middle. And, your stand up paper Easter egg is ready!
