Easter On Time!!!
Hey, everybody! I can't believe I can say this but I actually have a holiday craft to post-on time! WOOT! A lady in my church taught our Relief Society, (women's group), how to make the most beautiful Easter eggs EVER!!! They are so incredibly easy to do and-I think-strongly compete with Fabragé eggs! The best thing is-the possibilities are endless! (And cheap!!!)
To make these eggs, all you need is:
Foam eggs (a variety of sizes is available at your local craft store)
Sewing pins (you can use different kinds for different effect ie: pearl headed pins)
Glue (I use Aleen's Tacky Glue)
And, of course, your Imagination!
You can start from either the top or the bottom of the egg, (I prefer the top). Add a dab of glue to the area you plan to put a sequin. This will help hold the egg together as time goes by and as the eggs are 'handled'. Thread a bead onto the pin and then stick the pin through the center of the sequin onto the egg. It is as simple as that! Repeat the process in whatever pattern you like. :) The result is breathtaking and makes the most beautiful decoration!
Place your decorated egg in an egg cup for a cute ornament. Place many decorated eggs in a bowl for a magnificent center piece to your dinner table, or in glass vases as home decor! (I plan on trying thing with foam balls at Christmas time.)
Well enjoy!!! I sure hope to see some examples! If anybody is up for the challenge, post your link in a message below so I can see your beauties! Take care and Happy Easter!!!
