I have been working on decorating our home for the upcoming Easter holiday. We are expecting family from Florida, California and Puerto Rico this spring so I have been putting my efforts into early spring cleaning and organizing.
There is also the living room ceiling repairs that need to be completed before the family arrives. Our ceiling is plaster and that is one messy job to complete. But I am happy that it is finally getting done since I have been wanting to do a makeover in our living room for a while now and could not until the ceiling was repaired.
As we all now, decorating for each season can be expensive so I am always looking for easy and inexpensive ways to make my own seasonal designs to decorate our home. Being handy with a glue gun surely offers a solution and plenty of possibilities if you are a bit creative. One of the crafts projects that I came up with this year are these sweet and darling foam eggs covered with moss and faux spring flowers. Easy to do and perfect for Easter or spring.
Below is my tutorial. I hope it is easy for you to follow.
- Tacky Spray
- Wire Cutters
- Foam Eggs
- Glue gun
Begin by covering your table or work surface. Moss is very messy. Now start spraying the foam egg with tacky glue and cover with moss. Do small sections at a time so glue does not dry. Continue until you have the entire egg covered with moss. Press moss firmly to ensure that it is well adhered to the foam egg.
Wrap egg with ribbon of your choice, tie at center to and make bow. I used two ribbons for this project.
Now begin to glue flowers on top of egg. Place larger pieces on the bottom and work your way around the bow, Finish by putting your prettiest and/or accent flowers on the center of the bow. Check for any empty spaces but do not over do it. And know you are done. So easy and beautiful isn't.
Now use your little masterpieces to decorate your table or home for Easter. These are also great for your spring decorating, spring gatherings and even bridal showers.
Thank you for your visit friends. I hope you have a great weekend.
