Want to do a fun little Easter project with a few supplies that you probably already have among your craft supplies? Pastel felt scraps, pearls, pins, an egg Styrofoam shape, and a small flower shaped die.
I don't know about you, but it is so much fun to get out a few basic supplies.....with a general idea and see where it goes and how the project develops.
I just bought this Sizzix lilac flower die recently, just for the shape and size of these flowers. I know this is old school, but I have been using these dies lately to cut felt or wool. It is so much fun and it cuts it so well. Here I am using up some scrap pieces to get a few more flowers cut out.
I just cut up a bunch of these flowers in both sizes....in several different pastel colors that I had in my felt stash. A couple of them are wool felt, which I love. I don't have much of that because of the cost.....but it is wonderful to work with and has a more beautiful look to it. Aren't they sweet?
This is what I ended up with....adding little pearls with pins and a piece of ribbon for the hanger. I dip the ends of the pins in a little craft glue before inserting them into the Styrofoam to secure them well. You could leave the ribbon off, if you don't want to hang it. I think doing one all in the same color-way would be wonderful too. I included Miss Chicky in the pic too....this is a Mill Hill kit from a couple years ago. She is a hoot!!! I often take something like this to work on when we travel.
We are enjoying an unbelievable spring here in the Midwest....so I hope this little project brings some "spring" into your life. Isn't this Easter postcard wonderful? ....as always right click on the image and you can save it to your computer. I just saw a garland made from postcards that are machine sewed to a piece of rick-rack. It was wonderful, I haven't gotten to that yet.....so many projects, so little time.......
