1. First, make the workpiece. For it, into a bowl with warm water, add 10 gr. of PVA glue and drop crumpled papers there for some minutes.

2. Then squeeze the made mass thoroughly and shape it like an egg.

3. Put the workpiece into a warm place for a night till it dry fully.

4. When the workpiece is dried enough, you should cover it with white acrylic paint, so that to hide all small roughnesses and make the solid color, then cover all sides with glue.

5. The next step is to make decorations in the shape of leaves and flowers. They are made from narrow strips of colored paper 1,5 mm. in diameter. The strips are cut with a knife for paper and a metal ruler beforehand. For making big leaves, long strips will be good; for smaller ones — short.
