HERE’S THE HOW TO:
Stuff you’ll need:
Here’s how to make the single bead that hangs down in the cluster. Make a total of six with this pattern:
1. Loosely wrap orange streamer to form carrot shape, making it thicker at top. Tuck in gifts as you work. [See image 2 above]. Press end of paper down into top.
2. Fold green crepe paper in half across its grain. Download leaf template, and trace onto folded paper. Cut out; bunch up. Tuck leaves into carrot top; secure with dab of hot glue.
Transform egg shells into candleholders - simply clean the outer shell, break off the top and set aside the egg. Fill the shells with tea lights, then make omelettes with the eggs!
Here’s what I used:
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 foam cone
4 packs foam glitter egg ornaments
1 paper Easter grass
Hot glue gun
Start by pouring all the eggs on the table. Cut all of the ribbons off.
Put a dab of glue on egg then hold it in place for a few seconds. Start at the bottom and work your way up!
Although this pic shows grass being put on along the way, wait till the end to fill the holes with grass. It’s much easier. I used a pencil to push the grass into the gaps well. Make sure you let the glue dry well before filling the gaps.
It goes pretty quickly once you get going.
First I created my shamrock. I downloaded a template from Silhouette that I could use my with Silhouette Portrait machine. I made it the size I wanted and cut it on to plain white cardstock. I then used a few of the green washi tapes that I had on hand in different colors and patterns and covered my shamrock. I then trimmed the excess washi tape from the edges of the shamrock. I had an empty white canvas that is 12 x 18” that was the perfect size for this project. All I did was cover it with burlap, I just duct taped mine on so I could re-use the canvas at another time. I wrapped it like a present, you’d never know. Next I traced my shamrock on to a piece of foam core board and cut it out using an xacto knife. I then glued it to my washi tape shamrock using a glue stick. Then using my duct tape again I just adhered it my burlap canvas. And I was done.
you will need:
needle and thread
cut 4 leaves in the shape shown above. mine measured about 3/4 of an inch tall, and nearly an inch wide.
sew the leaves together as shown above, and tie the threads together tightly at the ends.
Create a rolled ruffle about 2 inches longer than the book or journal. Need help making a rolled ruffle? Learn how to make one here.
Fold under each end of the ribbon.
Cut a piece of elastic to fit the book or journal. I used 6 inches here. Insert the elastic at each end on the underside of the rolled ribbon. Sew the elastic in place (a couple lines straight across the elastic, better seen in the bias tape option).
Insert the decorative bookmark in your favorite book or wrap it around your journal.
Bias Tape Option:
Cut a piece of bias tape the length of a book or journal. Unfold one end of the bias tape, fold the end inward, and fold the bias tape back. Cut a piece of elastic. I used 6 inches. Insert the elastic into the end of the bias tape and sew the elastic in place with a couple of lines.
You can use them as bookmarks or book decorations.
Double up on one book for more personality and fun!
Or wrap the strap all the way around a journal to keep it closed.
