Hope you’re all enjoying your Easter weekend. We’ve had some excellent weather, although apparently it’s set to change tomorrow when we’re heading off to a BBQ.
I had grand plans to make several Easter crafts including a Simnel cake and a couple of decorated polystyrene eggs. But life got in the way so I didn’t manage most of what I’d planned.
I have a few decorated eggs, including a couple of beautiful Polish ones, so I managed to make myself an Easter tree, although I have to confess it’s looking a little beyond its best at the moment as the twigs/branches really need replacing.
I really wanted to make some decoupage eggs following this tutorial on the Martha Stewart website. I’m a bit short on time at the moment so I thought I’d simplify the design and use some beautiful red and gold paper I bought when I went to Japan a couple of years ago.
I simply cut a piece of paper the same size as the egg and then cut a series of slits in the top so that the edges would overlap when pasted onto the egg.
I’m pretty pleased with the results and I’ll do this craft again when I have a little more time. Particularly now that I have two polystyrene eggs waiting to be used!
I’ll leave you with this glorious poppy complete with spring rain. Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend.
