Spring is almost here and with it Spring home tours!
The doors of my casa will open next Thursday, and you're all invited. :)
I've been in Spring cleaning mode, changing pillow covers, adding color to the rooms, and I've also been using the hot glue gun to put together some crafts, like the one I'm sharing today.
The idea of the Easter bunny eggs totally came from Cassie @ Little Red Window, when I saw her project I thought those were the cutest little bunnies ever! Check them out right HERE.
I loved those bunnies so much so, that when I saw these white eggs at Michaels, I knew I just had to make a bunch of them.
The materials you'll need:
- Wreath form - I used a pool noodle 42" long.
- White ribbon to cover the wreath form
- 4 dozens of eggs (that's what I bought, but 5 or 6 will be even better)
- 1 Ultra fine point black Sharpie
- 1 Fine point pink Sharpie
- 1 Sheet stiff white felt
- Ribbons and decorative carrots
- Hot glue gun
The pool noodle was turned into a wreath, securing it with clear tape. I didn't have white ribbon, but this white with red polka dots used on the reverse side worked great to cover it.
This is one of the variations I made to the original version --->I used Sharpies to draw the facial features and a bit of pink eye shadow to color the cheeks. This whole part was done in a matter of minutes.
The ears and feet took more time, 48 ears and 48 feet is not a small number! I did it in a very sloppy way. Pink Sharpie was again used to color the areas inside.
Then, it was time to hot glue each and every one of those 48 ears and 48 feet on.
They sure made a big difference.
I only made 24 bunnies. At first I thought two dozens were going to be enough to cover the entire wreath. Boy was I wrong.
Thank goodness I bought four dozens, they were on sale, buy one get the other 50% off.
The 48 eggs were not even enough to cover the entire area.
A chunky ribbon (surgically removed from an old fancy blouse), saved the day!
Oh well, I still think it's an eggs-traordinary wreath!
See you next week. Have an awesome weekend!
