1.Take an old Cardboard which is no more used and Paint it completely with any color of acrylic paint. Let it dry

2.Now take thermacol sheet and cut it off into four pieces like a frame and stick it on cardboard. and now paint the thermacols sticked on cardboard.

3.Next step is to crush the cleaned egg shells (don't powder it). Break it to smaller flakes need of hammering your fingers will do)

4.Prepare the Modpodge. Mix 1 part fevicol with 2 parts water and dilute it.

5.Now comes the difficult part start applying diluted glue on the painted Thermacol and arrange the egg flakes on by one randomly till you get the mosaic effect.

7.Let it dry. After its dry apply one more coat of glue on top of the egg shells to seal it .This can also be done with Varnish to make it water proof.

8.Now add any embellishment or small picture at the centre of the Cardboard.

9.Put a hole on top of the cardboard and Add a satin ribbon into the Cardboard with glue for hanging purpose.
