Egg-ceptional & Elegant Easter Crafts!

Good evening friends! I just got back from the monthly library kids craft class I teach and we made some fun springtime crafts, I’ll share them with you later but first I want to show you the pretty decorative eggs I made using baker’s twine and ribbon from Papermart:

Make sure you use tacky glue for this project and save yourself some frustration. It grabs the string quick and dries pretty fast. I like the Aleene’s brand. After having fun making the baker’s twine eggs I tried to think of a way to adapt it for children, I had seen a yarn bunny on Crafts ‘n Coffee and thought what a great idea, then I thought I could make a chick too with the mini Styrofoam eggs! I scored 12 packs of the mini eggs and 6 packs of the large eggs at the Dollar Tree.

DCF 1.0

The nest was made of shredded paper and I am sad to inform you that my fabulous little hand crank paper shredder has “bought the farm” so the kids had to use fringe scissors but it all worked out well. So whether you want a trendy bakers twine egg (check out the yummy colors and awesome prices at Papermart) or a kids craft with yarn and felt the technique is the same but the ideas are endless! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
