Happy Easter!


Here are few more eggs I almost forgot to show you….again.  I had these ready for last year and forgot.  They are clippings from a retro magazine that my gram gave me about six or seven years ago I’d say.  I have plans to try out the ribbon ones below.  At this point, I’m not sure if I have enough patience to get a string of seed beads to stick to a round surface like the ones above.  Glue recommendations anyone?  May all your Easter baskets and eggs be filled with sweet crafty loot.  And have a lovely day wherever you are….

  1. Happy Easter!! Hope you got my email and it didn’t go into your spam šŸ™‚

  2. Love the ribbon ones. For the others, you could leave the seed beads on the strand if you buy the Czech kind they come like that in a mass. Then use Tacky Tape (see http://jewelrymaking.about.com/library/weekly/aa060901.htm) and make the strips of glue around before sticking the strands on it. Then pull out the string.

  3. I had never thought about beading an easter egg, but after seeing these pictures I’ve got to give this a try! Since today’s Easter I may be a little late, but I’ll give it a shot anyway. Thanks for the neat idea!
