"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
