Easter Egg Craft

My mom is living with me now which meant she had to leave her home town and family and friends.  Thankfully people call but she doesn’t have a lot of visitors.

It was a nice visit when her sister-in-law, Emma Lee Bishop, a strong southern woman in her own right, came for a visit.  Because she is 85 years old, her daughter Judy, brought her.  We all had a good visit and it reminded me how much I love and miss family.

I wanted to share a craft that Aunt Emma Lee made for my mom.  She brought her a beautiful geranium and placed in the flowers were these adorable Easter eggs.

Aunt Emma Lee took plastic eggs in pastel colors and attached a skewer to make plant stakes.  She did this by touching the end of the egg with the hot glue gun and this formed a hole.  She inserted a skewer and hot glued around it.  Then she covered the eggs with a decoupage  medium and rolled them in pastel seed beads.  After they had dried, she sprayed them with clear paint to add to the shine and tied ribbon at the base of the egg in coordinating colors.  They looked beautiful and the arrangement looked so professional.

Hope you’ll give it a try.
