Showcase your budding talent with some easy-to-craft blossoms.

Here's how: Cut solid-color origami paper into a range of different-size squares—2.5 to 3 inches is simplest to work with. Following instructions (download below), fold squares and cut out flower patterns. Using a small paintbrush, apply white glue to the backs of the flowers and adhere to eggs, pressing out excess glue or air bubbles with your fingers. Cut thin strips of paper to make stems and leaves.
