Hop to it

Homemade Easter ornaments

Easter is just around the corner, but there's still time to make it a craftacular success. (I gagged a little forming that sentence.)

All you need are some balloons, some cotton string or crochet yarn, watered down glue, tissue paper, glitter and grosgrain ribbons.

And 24 hours of drying time.

It's the same basic principal as this project. ...


Except when you're done popping the balloon and fishing out all the latex remnants, you cut a little window in the orb.


We then decoupaged some shredded tissue paper inside our eggs and sprinkled the outside with glitter the dog had located and managed to spread liberally throughout the house one afternoon in our absence.

Once that is dry (hairdryer will work if pressed for time) use a glue gun to affix ribbon around the opening. (Rickrack works best, but I didn't have any so we just used grosgrain.)


Fill the egg with paper grass, a toy or candy and your kids will think the Easter Bunny outdid herself.
