I was blown away by the architectural pineapple that Sharyn had made with Kelleigh Ratzlaff’s Sweet Strawberry Template Set. I wanted to create something with this too. Not as elegant as Sharyn’s creation, but I had fun making these flowers.
Digital papers: Fresh Cut : The Collection – by the Digichick Designers
Using the small leaf from the template.
Printed on the back as well.
I liked the rounder half of the plastic Easter eggs. But, the pointy half would work well, too.
Punch holes on both sides.
Put floral wire through. It can be colored with a permanent makers of your choice.
Twist the wires to secure it to the egg. Leave about 1″ of wire on both sides.
Punch a hole on the flower.
Put the flower through the wire end.
Tie the knot any way you like it.
Wrinkle the flower.
Extra flowers can be made almost the same way. Put the wire through one side.
Twist it to make the knot.
Secure knot the other side as with the knot.
Wrap around one flower to the other.
Wrap the extra flowers around the wire on the Easter egg.
Decorate the inside. Cute, huh! My 5 year old boy told me I did a very good job making this. I think he said that because I told him he could eat the jelly beans if he poses for me. =)
Twist the wires in the center.
Hang it on a long wire or thread to create a banner.
This is a great way to decorate for a party.
Little flameless tea lights will fit inside.
Easy and inexpensive way to create and decorate! I’m sure a lot of you will have many many plastic eggs after Easter Sunda. Why not make something beautiful with them? You can even make some paper cupcakes, too!
