An Easter Craft Idea!

This craft is a really cute one! I could see us doing this here, though I wouldn't use paper, I'd use fake leaves like you can get at a craft store or even our local Walmart has them I think. This craft comes from the Family Fun website. All the ideas, pictures, and instructions come from them. I'm only borrowing to share! See this craft or find more ideas here: http://familyfun.go.com/easter/easter-crafts/all-easter-crafts/easter-egg-wreath-847635/




Here's the craft:




Materials




14 plastic pull-apart eggs




Puffy paint




Egg cartons




2 large heavy-duty paper plates




Scissors




Glue




Green craft foam




Twist ties








Instructions







  1. First, decorate 14 plastic pull-apart eggs with puffy paint and let them dry. (Overturned egg cartons make great workstations and drying racks; just set each egg half over a carton cup bottom.)










  1. Cut the rims from the paper plates and glue them together. Glue green craft foam leaves around the ring, leaving 1 1/2 inches between them.










  1. To attach the eggs, tightly wrap twist ties (one for each egg) between the leaves around the paper plate ring, then simply close the egg halves together over the ties.
