Just before Christmas, my friend, Shelly, gave me the sweetest little Christmas bouquet.
That pretty bouquet inspired me to make an Easter bouquet.
I picked up these little eggs at Michael's. They were the perfect size, but I wanted different colors and I didn't care for the metallic flecks.
So, I painted the eggs with Dixie Belle paint using the colors Vintage Duck Egg, Daisy, Apricot, & Limeade.
I cut wooden skewers in half and inserted them into a hole I made in the eggs using a nail.
Once the eggs were all on the skewers, I aged them with Van Dyke Glaze.
I saved the burlap from the Christmas bouquet, fashioned it back into its cone shape, then added twine to hold its shape.
I stuffed the burlap cone with moss.
Then I inserted the skewers into the moss.
I made a banner on the computer, printed it on card stock, and cut it like the one on the Christmas bouquet.
I find it very fitting that something from Christmas inspired something for Easter.
