#MonthlyMake inspiration – Design your own Easter Eggs

Did you know….March is Design your own Easter Egg Month? Such a fantastic theme for the STAEDTLER #MonthlyMake competition!
To make sure the Easter Bunny visits you, make your own Easter Egg cups for all your egg creations and yummy chocolate!

Fancy some inspiration? Take a look at our Easter Egg cup how-to-guide:

What you need

  • FIMO soft modelling clay, we used Yellow (8020-10) and Orange (8020-42)
  • A modelling tool
  • A black marker pen
  • An old table knife
  • A rolling pin
  • A circular lid or cutter
  • A ruler
  • Wet wipes
  • A baking tray or tile

Handy tips

  • Use wet wipes to keep your fingers clean so darker colours don’t transfer onto lighter ones.
  • A plain, glazed tile makes a good work surface for FIMO. Models can be made on a tile then put straight into the oven to bake

To make the basic egg cup shape:

Step 1 

Step 1Roll out a block of FIMO to approx. 6cm x 12cm and 5mm deep. Trim the edges with a modelling tool or an old table knife to make a rectangle. Keep the FIMO leftovers to re-use.

Step 2

Step 2

Curl the strip round joining the ends together. Blend over the join with your finger, or just press the ends together.

Step 3

Step 3

Push a piece of FIMO into the bottom of the egg cup to fill the hole.

Step 4

Step 4

Roll out your Yellow FIMO leftovers and cut out a circle to crate your chick’s head. Roll two small balls from leftover FIMO and push into the head to make the eyes. You can use a black marker to colour these in once the egg cup has been baked if you don’t have any black FIMO.  Roll out your Orange FIMO and cut a small triangle for the beak.

Step 5

Step 5

Carefully press the head on the egg cup and add some thin strips of yellow on the top.

Step 6

Step 6

Cut some wings and model the feet. Press them onto the egg cup. Bake at 110°/230°F for 30 minutes on the tile or baking tray. Allow the FIMO to cool before handling.

Now you have mastered the Easter chick, why not try an egg cup design of your own! Here are some more of our designs for extra inspiration:
