"Rag Ball Easter Eggs"....

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

This is an article I wrote in the March/April issue of my newsletter, "Living Little with Heidi"....thought you might all enjoy it with Easter right around the corner!

“Rag Ball Easter Eggs”
**************************************
Easter at our house,… always involves “branches, blooms & a variety of eggs“. Last year, I decided I wanted to create something new, so I created the “Rag ball Easter egg”. Loving the look of rag balls, I basically made these exactly the same way, wrapping thin strips of lightweight cotton around styrofoam eggs. After completely covering the styrofoam , I hot-glued tiny “paper flowers”, (that I had punched out from scrap- booking paper)….scattering them all over the fabric wrapped eggs!.....

And then as a final touch, I simply added plain, little buttons to the middle of each flower!

I was very pleased with how these charming eggs turned out!….& decided to show them off by suspending them with fishing line, from a branch I plucked from the back yard!.. This year I plan on making a few more. After all, can anyone ever have too many decorated eggs?
Happy preparing!.....Heidi XO

These are very cute, Heidi. I like the idea, and being a quilter, I have lots of fabric scraps. LOL.

Happy PS
