It’s my turn!
As a member of the Handcrafted Society, I got to choose the theme for this month.
Since we are heading into the Easter holiday, it made perfect sense to use “eggs” as our medium.
But I wanted a little twist…with color!
So, each creator was assigned a color and given the challenge of creating eggs in that color with their own stamp of creativity.
And I love what each person came up with!
For my part, I chose light pink…with a twist!
Decorative Eggs for Spring with Just the Right Bling
This is an easy project that anyone can do!
And, you can choose pretty much any color and bling that you like!
So let’s get started!
You need just a few supplies…
- Plastic Eggs
- yarn (single color and/or ombre)
- Clear gel glue
- Sharpie marker
- Metallic bronze craft paint
- Small paint brush
- Decorative rhinestone beaded ribbon
Yarn Wrapping a Decorative Egg
Start with a dollop of clear glue on the top of the egg and anchor the end of the yarn.
Then start winding and wrapping, applying the clear blue as you go.
The top half of the egg went very quickly for me. However, once I got to the bottom half, gravity started to work against me and it was more challenging to keep the winding tight on the egg.
A simple needle to the rescue!
After winding the yarn on top of the glue, a simple push with the needle helped to keep the yarn coverage tight.
Just the Right Bling
Using a Sharpie marker and starting from the bottom of the egg, draw some meandering branches up the egg.
And remember as you draw…branches emerge from branches!
Adding an overlay of bronze metallic paint on the branches gives them just a little more depth and “pop!”
There are so many types of “bling” that can be used for the flowers on the branches.
Rhinestones, mini flowers, color, metallics…
I found all of these in a simple jeweled ribbon at the dollar store.
A quick snip, snip with some scissors and I had loads of colorful, metallic, rhinestone flowers!
Just a dot of clear glue is all it takes to create blooming flowers on these branches.
These eggs are so sweet!
Spring has sprung!
How about an ombre decorative egg companion?
An Ombre Yarn Decorative Egg
I love ombre!
Yarn is available in so many beautiful ombre color combinations.
I adore this pink/peach chenille yarn. Perfect for an ombre yarn-wrapped decorative egg!
Same process: glue, wind, and line up. The ombre yarn creates its own random ombre pattern on the egg.
The completed ombre egg has a funkier vibe to it.
And I love it with the sweet, flowering branch eggs!
So does my little bunny friend!
Color, texture, and just the right bling!
It’s amazing how a few simple supplies can be woven together to create something so unique and beautiful. With a few twists, some colorful yarns, and just the right bling, you can make Easter feel like a real celebration.
