I made a promise to myself to plan get togethers.
Fun craft days with my girls.
And I did it!
I found a little inspiration here.
So we started with brown paper eggs from Hobby Lobby.
Other DIYs use foam but the only ones I could find were $$$.
It's best to base coat them first.
This way if any egg shows through the brown won't show.
A flower punch from Michaels.
I found using a lighter and darker paper worked best for me.
I used scrapbook paper and card stock.
These pins came from Wal Mart.
They come 100 to a pack and that's just what it will take to fill a large egg.
So you will need 200 flowers punched to make one large egg.
I thought we would never finish punchin' LOL.
The paper eggs require muscles to push the pins through.
This is where foam would work best...but you know $$$
So I muscled up and wore leather gloves..ha!
Let the fun begin!
I curved the top flower up a bit. Pretty Pretty
You don't have to stick with solid colors.
Plaid is adorable!
Kaylee made some extra just for me. love her!
We had so much fun!!
Did I mention the food?
I think that is always one of the best parts...food & fellowship!
I left my OCD in the other room and just enjoyed the day.
Brittany made some for her classroom.
She teaches 3rd grade Math.
Missy will put hers on her foyer table.
Maddy....well ..she is still working on hers ;)
Shelby was the creative one with all of her neat colors.
Here is a small one that Kaylee made. love the blue
I'm not sure just where mine will go.
For now they are resting on some Hobby Lobby grass.
The best part of this DIY....family!
We already have another planned!
Wish my house was big enough for all of you to join in.
Talk about a fun party ;)
