Crafty Easter Crafts

Crafts are easily in my top five favorite things about holidays, and Easter is no different.  I also have a Pinterest.  I’m not as obsessed as I thought I would be, but I do like to get holiday recipes and ideas from the site.  I don’t use it as an inspiration tool as much as I do a keeper of crafting/recipe sites.

This particular craft originally came from [this site], as far as I know.  I liked it because my grandmother had bought me a candlestick holder for Christmas that would be perfect for this!

I had to change a few of the instructions to meet my particular budget and supplies, but it still turned out great.  It’s easy to make too.  Extra bonus.  🙂

Here were the supplies:

1 Styrofoam Egg

Silk Flowers (I had to use two of packages of the one showing)

Brads or Pins (I used the same yellow pins)

Scissors or a sharp knife

She had cute punch-out flowers to dazzle her egg, but I found these awesome silk flowers.  I find that the key is to find them as small as you can get them, but not all the same size, so it creates a texture.

So, you cut off the bottom of the Styrofoam Egg, so it sits steady on the candlestick holder.

Then, you place the flowers all over the egg until they cover it, fastening them with the brads or pins.

It’s really that easy, and it was a perfect way to kick off the Easter holiday!

Do you have any favorite crafts for this holiday?
