It's a pretty easy but oh-so-time-consuming project. The kind best tackled snuggled on the couch watching a movie or ten ;) If your up to the hot-gluing challenge - here's the breakdown...
Start with an egg shape (I found these eggs filled with Pop Rocks at both the Dollar Store and Walmart - I like the size and that they're flat on the bottom)
Since the colors were a little...um, bold, I sprayed the eggs with a beige paint for plastics
Cut fabric strips (for the mini rosettes) 1 inch wide by 4 1/2 inches long (I used two coordinating cotton fabrics from a Quick Cuts Stax)
To make the rosette, start by folding a strip of fabric in half longways
With the fold facing up, fold the right corner to start the rosette
Release the lengthways fold and wind the strip around the center, twisting as you go to create the rosette
Hot glue the edge of the fabric to the underside of the now-formed rosette
To assemble, hot glue the rosettes to the egg (I ended up using approximately 250 rosettes - there's alot of gluing here!)
For the finishing touch, I glued in a few hydrangea petals that I had left over from the Hydrangea Easter Eggs
I am thrilled with the result! Here's the inspiration board again
And here's a little Easter vignette
Luckily the weather is still unseasonable chilly, or I don't think I would have finished it in a weekend!
