Cherub Eggs No 4 – DIY Tin Foil Trimmed Hangers

I also designed a bonus sheet of the Cherub Eggs:

Inspired by soldering and Dresden Tin Foil, here is how I decided to embellish my eggs:

  • Print on cardstock (I used Canon Matte Photo Paper (160g).
  • Attach each sheet to thin cardboard (cereal box) with spray glue
  • Attach sheet music printed on regular (80g) printer paper to the reverse side
  • Cut out the individual eggs
  • Cut 3 cm wide strips of metallic foil (mine is gold, but various colors are available!)
  • Score down the middle of each strip
  • Punch the strips with an edge punch (mine is from Martha Steward) on both sides, make sure you align the patterns
  • Fold each strip down the middle
  • Cut between each arch, so only a t-h-i-n string of foil keeps the strip together
  • Attach the strip to the egg. I attached the first and the last arch with hot glue, starting on the reverse side. Then I used clear craft glue applied with a toothpick to glue down all the other arches.
  • Flip your egg to the front side and glue down the strip. I used the clear craft glue applied with a toothpick.
  • Punch holes and string your egg. I used a golden tinsel pipe cleaner, but you can use anything you like.
  • Hang and TA-DAH: you have “soldered” Easter Egg hangers 🙂

Here is a few pictures from my process:
