- Gather the tools and materials listed above.
- For a half fig, cut a foam egg in half. Smash in the top of both full and half pieces to create pointy tops.
- To cover the full fig, cut out a rectangle around the width of the egg (approx 6″ x 4″), going with the grain. Glue and gather in both ends, making the bottom flush with an egg shape and the top glued and gathered to create a stem.
- Trace the half fig on blush & chiffon crepe paper. Cut out slightly larger so the paper folds around the edges of the foam.
