Mr and Mrs Easter Egg Head

Mr and Mrs Easter Egg Head at theexperimentalhome.com

Are you ready for Easter? Have you decorated Easter eggs, yet? For those of you saying, “Oh, crap” right now, I have a quick and amazingly fun project for you… Mr. and Mrs. Easter Egg Head!

Seriously, these cute little egg ladies and gentlemen couldn’t be easier with the help of your Silhouette machine. All you have to do is download the free Silhouette files HERE, open them up, add some print-and-cut registration marks, print them out on white card stock, and cut them out (go HERE for some detailed print-and-cut instructions). Don’t have a Silhouette machine? You can still make these eggs! Download the pieces-parts as .pdf files HERE and take a spend a few minutes with a pair of scissors and/or an x-acto knife. By the way, I would appreciate it if you followed my blog in exchange for the free files using any of the links at the top of the right-hand column.

Mr and Mrs Easter Egg parts

Quick aside, I set out to draw all the facial features myself, but started to get a little short on time, so I took a little help from these free vector graphic files: hats, tall hat, fedora, cowboy hat, mouthes.

To assemble your eggs, you first need to make the egg stands (the shirts) stand up. Once cut out, there should be little slits on each side of the rectangle. Just slide one slit into the other to make a cylinder. You can secure the flaps with tape or glue.

Build an egg stand

Oh, by the way, boil yourself a half-dozen eggs or so and stick them on the egg stands. If you want to make a dozen eggs, you will need to cut two sets of everything.

Now, you are all ready to add fun faces to your eggs. I used a good-old Elmer’s glue stick to add all the pieces. I chose a glue stick because I know it is non-toxic (since I plan to eat the eggs later) and it is water soluble so I can wash off the glue and redecorate them later (I can only eat so many hard-boiled eggs). It worked surprisingly well, even though my eggs were cold and sweating in the Texas humidity.

I am almost embarrassed to admit how smitten I was with these little egg people. I did stop myself before I named them all like I did my Easter Bonnet ladies last year. But, I was calling these two the BFFs.

And these two, the odd couple.

And, of course, there is my favorite, the dweeb. He makes me giggle.

I hope you and your family have fun creating with Mr and Mrs Easter Egg Head!

    These are too cute! If I had them around, I might start making them talk to each other and have conversations. The two best friends might even start whispering about the odd couple… Thanks for the free cut file!!

    I am not surprised at all that they were born in that creative “experimental” brain of yours. Sheer genius right here. And yes, I want to play with them all the live-long day. I can do that, right? 😉
