Jennifer from The Polka-Dot Umbrella
I am thrilled Dianna asked us to participate on her darling blog for her Spring Fling!The Polka-dot Umbrella is a blog of 5 ladies that all add something fun, different, and creative to the table. Here are just a few tutorials. You can click on the image to jump to the tutorial.
Let's get started!
I was doing a search on a spring or easter door wreaths, and came across two I loved! Something Wonderful, had a brilliant idea for putting paper mache over her eggs to give them texture and a different color. Debbie Doodlings, had a darling idea of putting easter grass in between the eggs as a filler. I had just the plan...
I began by making a flower and water paste, and then used it to glue my paper to the eggs.
I painted my eggs the color I wanted them. If you don't have a pastel paints don't forget you can add white to any color to make it lighter. After I painted them, I speckled my eggs to give them extra texture and color.
I made a frame from cardboard like Debbie did. I hot glued my eggs down and added a little grass and a bow, and it was all ready to hang on the door!
The great part is, not only does it look beautiful and very full, but I only spent $4 at the dollar store!
I hope you find this inspirational! Please come and visit us for more wonderful and inspirational ideas.
