It’s EASTER Week! Whoop whoop.
Today started off a little rough with one heck of a headache that thanks to a few self-massages and modern medicine eventually subsided. Sadly I missed out on singing time with the kiddies at church (for those of who don’t know what that means – I am the music leader for kids between the ages of 4ish and 11). But I made up for it by preparing for next week at home.
I also decided to do a few Easter décor crafts more of which I will show off later in the week (when I can get a few more craft supplies from Her Annies – the best craft supply store in Centurion – and maybe even South Africa).
I looked at what I had available and decided that I had the feels for a few Easter Egg Hangings which is what I’ll be showing you today.
Here is what you’ll need:
- Modge podge
- Varnish (optional as long as you don’t plan on hanging them in the rain)
- Scrap fabric in your favourite easter colours
- String/ribbon (something to hang the eggs with when they’re done
- Easter Egg shapped wood panels in any size you prefer (I made 2 different sizes)
Coat the easter egg wood cutting with an even and generous layer of Modge-Podge.
Carefully place the fabric cutting over, smoothing out any wrinkles or bumps.
Add another layer of Modge-Podge over the fabric.
Repeat on other side once the first half has dried.
Next use the thinnest point of your scissors to poke a hole through the fabric where the wood had already had a hole.
Thread your string/ribbon through the hole, hang it up wherever you like and voila, you have an Easter Egg Hanging. Make a few more for greater effect and even more prettiness.
Keep coming back for more Easter reads, arts and crafts in the next week.
