Spring is on the way!! It’s time to get the eggs & chicks out. I’ve got a simple way to put your ribbon to work as a FUN decoration!
First you’ll need a base- you know how I like to ‘upcycle’ so I put a priority mail box back to work!
I drew an egg shape on the ‘back’ side, as I wanted a white base.
I can tell you that an exacto knife is much more efficient than scissors for cutting this out (without bending the cardboard!)
Next pick out some spring colored ribbon!
I used 1 ½ “ solid/wired ribbon, 1 ½ “ solid/textured/satin, fuzzy pom poms, and 1” grosgrain ric rac, but May Arts has a HUGE amount of choices that would be perfect! I can also tell you that the wired & unwired work equally well for this project!
Now get out your glue gun
Put small areas of glue & apply ribbon in a ruffle-like manner. No rhyme or reason, just cover the shape!
I wanted 3 colors, but you could easily do solid eggs with pom pom polka dots!
Once my egg was covered I wanted to add a little more detail
I hot glued the ends of the ric rac to the back, with a tiny amount in the middle, now add your pom poms!
I added a ribbon loop hot glued to the back for hanging
And here’s what you’ll end up with!
This project was really quick- but beware of hot glue!!! (ouch!)
I hope you’ve been inspired!
