The week ends are my time for creativity. I love to be creative. I am sure that I should be mopping the floors or cleaning my house from top to bottom but at this moment I really need this outlet so I just go for it! This week end I experimented with different egg decorating techniques. I poked a hole in both ends of a raw egg with a pin and blew out the contents so that the eggs would last longer. I hadn't done that since I was in grade school, but it worked well and was easy to do.
|I made this one for my girl. I used some ribbon from my sewing stash and a "k" sticker I had left over from a birthday party idea.|
|And one for my boy. I used green craft paint and painted it with a flat ended paintbrush. I thought it looked like grass. I also had these stickers left over from a birthday party idea.|
|A good use of my fabric stash. this fabric covered egg was really easy to make. I glued cut out strips of fabric with regular school glue.|
|I created the polka dots with an eraser end of pencil dipped in craft paint. They would have made perfect polka dots if I didn't have such shaky hands.|
|I love this color of blue. I mixed some blue food coloring to white craft paint to get just the right blue.|
|This one is my paper mache egg. It would have been really cute if I would had a springy looking napkin, but all I had left were these napkins from the Elmo birthday! I just mixed Elmers glue and a little water for the glue.|
