Using leftover plastic eggs and clay, these Gudetama Lazy 80's Egg Planters are not only cute but functional as well. Use them for real plants or faux. How ever you plant them, they are sure to bring some GUDE vibes to your home.
Now let's get started!
• Plastic eggs
• Air dry clay
• Sanding brick
• Acrylic craft paint
• Paint brushes of various sizes
• Paint pens (optional)
1. Begin by cutting the top 1/2” off the top of the plastic eggs using the scissors.
2. Next, glue the top of the eggs to the bottoms and let dry.
3. Now it is time to cover your eggs in clay! Roll out the air dry clay into a 1/4” thick piece and wrap it around the plastic eggs. Use your fingers to smooth out the clay as much as possible. At this stage, water is your friend. Dip your fingers into a bowl of water and use the water to smooth the clay and remove any creases or seams in the clay.
4. Once your eggs are completely covered in clay, set aside and let dry fully (at least 24 hours).
5. When the eggs are fully dry, use the sanding brick to sand the clay smooth.
6. Now comes the fun part! Painting your eggs with all the 80’s inspired Gudetama patterns! Paint them solid colors and use white paint pens to add a grid pattern, or paint Gudetama!
7. Once the paint is dry, you can fill your eggs with soil and your small succulent plants.
Tada! The Gudetama Lazy 80's Egg Planters are complete and ready to display on your window ledge or desk. And as always in Gudetama Lazy 80's fashion, stay rad and stay totally lazy!
