Today I'm sharing my part from the Easter swap I participated in... Warning to Trisha if you want to be surprised.. LOOK AWAY NOW.. don't read any further!!
So the swap rules were to make an Easter/Spring spoolie(a decoration created on top an old wood thread spool). Well, I had plenty of old spools and was happy to put one to good use. To be honest, I was totally clueless as where to begin and just couldn't get any inspiration. I ordered some plain undecorated cardboard eggs, hoping that once they arrived something would pop in my head.
My partner loves girly things, Paris, glitter, pink, and princesses. And she, like me, doesn't have a ton of Easter decor. So where do I begin. I started with a print off of an Eiffel tower I found. Then it hit me... use half of one of the eggs for a little diorama. Once I got going, everything fell into place, though I did repaint the egg a few times until I settled on white for the outside. I'm really happy with the finished results and I think it came out pretty darn cute. What do you think?
Have an eggcellent day!!
