easter faberge egg...my version


i can hardly believe we are heading into April already. But in the spirit of Easter I am making some Easter inspired projects that I will post over the next 2 weeks. First up is this little number...my version of the Faberge egg. No I have not counted the number of pins used or how long it took me, but it is pretty mind numbing and stunning! (sorry the pic is a bit dark) Ok so the base is a polystyrene egg covered with sequence and pins. The only break in the pins is the ribbon band about 3/4 down. I dyed some tags with dylon in french navy and then just added making memories flowers from their Easter range last year. For those who feel pretty brave these make wonderful name place cards for Easter morning breakfast. You could make smaller ones for each member of the family and then include their names on the tags. Hope you feel inspired!
