Make your own stash'n'smash mermaid egg! Cover the outside of your egg with mermaid patterns, sealing the egg shut so it cannot be opened. Use the coin slot to fill your egg with money (it will take over 100 £1 coins!) and when you're ready to retrieve your stash, smash it open terrimundi-style (...or carefully slice the egg apart around the join and start saving up a new stash). Decoupage (the art of transforming an object with paper) is a fun creative activity that gives fantastic results.




You will receive full instructions with the kit on how to decoupage, as well as tips and creative ideas. Simply put, decoupage involves tearing paper into small pieces and sticking them one by one onto your object until it is covered in a paper mosaic. The special glue also acts as a varnish which protects the surface and gives your design a professionally painted look.


This kit contains:


  • 1 x polystyrene egg with money slit, egg has a slightly flattened shape so sits nicely for use as a moneybox (16cm x 11cm)
  • 1 x decoupage glue (100ml)
  • 1 x decoupage brush
  • 6 x mini sheets of mermaid inspired decoupage paper (approx 12cm x 18cm each) (let me know which set of papers you would like)
  • 1 x double sided A4 laminated sheet with a guide to decoupage, tips and ideas


...the pack contains plenty of glue and paper so you could use any leftovers to complete another mini project or two (eg make a pebble paperweight or a jam jar pen pot).  Choose from any of the collections pictured on this page.
