Easter really snuck up on me this year! I’m not sure if it was because the holiday is in March this year or simply that I am behind the game, but my usual craftiness didn’t manage to make it to many Easter projects! Except for the one I am sharing today – and quite frankly, it’s a new favourite! These are fun, easy and oh, sooooo cute!
I am not sure if you have bought any of the plastic Easter eggs lately, but they have little addition that makes them perfect for this craft – holes. Yup, you heard me! They seem to have a set of holes at the top and at the bottom (perhaps for ventilation if you manage to get stuck inside one???!!!). Anyway, I have no idea why, but it makes them perfect for a little addition of ribbon (mine is is 7/8″ Double-Faced Satin from the Ribbon Resource). Add a little pompom nose and tail and you are all set! These really couldn’t be easier.
In fact, they were so easy that I was inspired to try some carrots as well!
These were done exactly the same way, just on the other end of the egg. I also did add a few more holes (no wait, my hubby did that for me) with a drill to get a bit more bushiness on the top of the carrots.
I will have a tutorial up on the May Arts blog a little later today if you want to check it out! I would love to have you stop by!
Thanks for the visit today!
