Be creative EVERY DAY • A Challenge
Today I dropped off four Easter air-planters for display and sale at a cute local shop, Greenspace.
They we so much fun to make because each one is different!
I started with a couple thrift store finds: ceramic egg cups (which I went searching for) and tiny vintage bunny ornaments (which I bought as an impulse around Christmas).
I experimented with blown eggs and the Dremel (my new favorite tool). I broke soooo many shells that I ended up decoupaging the insides with tissue paper to add some strength! Hubby says I should try a lacquer or epoxy next time.
For the finishing touches I added sparkly yellow Easter grass, ribbon (discovered adhesive ribbon – awesome!), sphagnum moss, and grape vine twigs to hang the bunnies.
Soon I will be testing out how well I can etch and carve eggshells! Patience be with me.
