Easter colors are my favorite – I can’t get enough brightly colored eggs!
Today’s Easter decoration was a simple one, incorporating both bright colors and eggs. A perfect twist on the traditional wreath.
- Big Value Pack 1.5″ Wooden Eggs
- 8×10 Wide Black Wooden Frame
- Small Screw Eye Hooks
- Foamies Silver Glitter Alphabet Stickers
- Yellow Ribbon
- Acrylic Craft Paint in
- Sand-It Gadget
The first thing I did was remove the glass and backing from my 8×10 frame, and coat the black frame with white acrylic paint. When the paint is dry, go over the surface of the frame with a Sand-It Gadget to remove part of the white paint. This gives the frame a custom distressed look.
Using a piece of string, or yarn, string all of the eggs pulling the string tight. Attach the strung eggs between two stable objects. I used a couple of photo easels, weighted with hand weights. This will make it so much easier to paint your eggs. You can reach the entire egg, and it will dry without rubbing against another surface.
Add sticker letters to the eggs to spell out “Happy Easter.”
My alphabet did not have enough “P’s,” so I trimmed down an “R.”
Measure the center of the top of your frame, and add a screw eye hook for ribbon to hang your frame.
