These chickens future is so bright--you
might need shades! In all seriousness, the neon paints I used on these
are so vibrant. You might really need sunglasses. Your kids are going to
love'm with all the neon colors popping up right now.
Pick your favorite Apple Barrel paint colors. The gloss finish makes the
eggs really smooth. Tip: Because of the light colors, it's a good
idea to base coat the eggs white first.
I didn't have any bright orange or
yellow paper so I painted some heavy card stock on both sides with the Apple
When the paint dries, fold a 1"
section over and cut tiny "V" shapes to create beaks.
Finish by hot gluing neon feather wings
to the top and sides. Mod Podge works well for adhering wiggle eyes.
Plop them in some bright egg cups and these chickens are ready to party!
