I’ve used silicone baking moulds to make plaster shapes to paint & decorate in the past – so last week when I found some Easter Egg ones at Spotlight I came up with this idea. I used regular plastic chocolate moulds too – these also turned out great.
I used a fast drying Plaster of Paris mix which I had in the cupboard (you can buy this from most hobby or craft stores). You just mix per the instructions on the packet and pour into the moulds and allow to dry.
Once set I gave them to Miss M to paint and we also added a few fluffy cotton balls for bunny tails & a pretty little bow :). Then I just attached a magnet using a permanent glue dot.
We love fridge magnets in our house – these are going to be used to place our Easter drawings, paintings & photos on the fridge.
Give them a go!
