I hope that if you share this idea you link it back to me, since this is solely my mom’s creation dating back to Colombia from many many years ago
You will need: Styrofoam eggs which I found @ Hobby Lobby for $3.99. (I used the 40% off coupon so it ended up being less than that) **Just a note to the side I don’t understand why Styrofoam here is SO expensive! It’s very cheap in Colombia, hence the reason why we decorated our tree with those kind of balls.We used to buy dozens and dozens of those and that ended up being cheaper than buying the typical crystal ones **
A metal nail file. Metal works the best because you will need to apply pressure into the Styrofoam as you put in the fabric and the file won’t bend as you do that.
Small pieces of fabric in all sorts of colors
A wood stick
A flower pot ($1.00 @ Target spot )
Start with stretching the piece of fabric and then push the corners in all the way with the nail file
When done with the first piece move on to the other fabric pieces always working each piece next to each other until you’ve filled every empty space.
It will end up looking like this. Then insert the wood stick
Place it in the middle of Styrofoam (for balance and stability) in a flower pot
Add the Easter grass and… there you have it!!
Ready to give my porch the much needed Easter look.
