speckled eggs


Speckled eggs ~ so cute and fun to make .



What else are you going to do with all these teeny , tiny scraps ?


All the little bits of fabric that just ends up on the floor is
cut into even smaller bits and simply glued to styrofoam eggs .
Even a plain gluestick does the trick .

Having a small bowl of water to clean your fingers as you glue and smooth is helpful.

The kids could help with these .
 If they really have to .

They look gorgeous displayed in a bowl or you could thread some string
through them and hang them from a branch for a different Easter display .

What a great idea. I will have to head to a craft store to get some, or maybe the plastic eggs so they can hunt them also!

What a good idea, Sophie would love to make these. I do not have any eggs but I do have some round styro foam balls in a box upstairs which we could try.
