EASTER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
Here are a few of my crafts for Easter, and I'm working on more!
|Welcome to Spring!|
What's that in front you ask? It is a panoramic egg. I took a Styrofoam egg, that I bought from #Michaels, cut it in half and carved out until it was hollow. I decorated the inside with bunnies, chicks, eggs and the top as the sky. I then glued the halves together, and I decorated the outside of the egg with lace and jewels. Now that I am into polymer clay, I am thinking, perhaps I can do another but make the outside look like real candy. Want a peek inside? I will post that picture tomorrow. I know it is on my Terra, but I wanted to get my Easter ideas out to you.
Next is my egg wreath. I made two of these last year and they have disappeared. No one could find them. hmmmm The only difference was that I made them without the bunny. I find the Styrofoam wreaths to be so expensive for my budget so I use the cardboard at the bottom of the water bottles. I wrapped green yarn around the ring I cut. Then added a multi-colored yarn on top to give it some pizazz. The 'chocolate' bunny is cut from a Silhouette Portrait pattern out of, what else, but chocolate brown paper and given the traditional eye. Design by Lori Whitlock of Silhouette America. I love it. It is so real and with less than half the calories of a real chocolate rabbit!
I'm not done decorating by far and will bring you updates and more how to pictures than I usually do. I plan to make felt eggs (My first attempt at felt anything!) Pom Pom eggs, Simple Yarn Carrots and a framed button egg. Fun FUN.
