Mossy Easter Eggs

Posted on April 1, 2014
Good Morning, Everyone! Happy April! It’s a beautiful morning here, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and it almost looks like spring may have finally arrived (even though it was snowing just two days ago!) – this better not be an April fools’ joke! I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for spring! And since Easter is just a couple of weeks away now, I have a really simple and fun idea to share with you today. You only need a couple of craft supplies to make these Mossy Easter Eggs, and they would look great on a natural-themed Easter table or in a big Easter basket. Here’s what you need and how you can make these yourself…

MOSSY EASTER EGGS

YOU WILL NEED
Eggs (real or plastic)
Crafting (artificial) moss (you can find this at any craft store)
Scissors & Hot Glue Gun

;

 .

DIRECTIONS
To make these mossy Easter eggs, first cut/tear the moss into small (about 1 inch) pieces. Next, apply some of the hot glue to a small area of the surface of the egg, then cover it with a piece of moss and press it down. Keep repeating this until the whole surface is covered. Then, using your scissors, even out any mossy bumps or any unevenness you may see to retain the egg shape.

Happy Crafting, Everyone!

    These are very cool! I just bought some moss for making lining a ring box, but I might have to use some for this too. Please come share at the Bacon Time linky, if you have not already, it just started over for the week this AM 🙂

    Aaaw! How cute are these? Moss is one of my favorite decorating choices…nature’s beauty. Very pretty idea – sweet and simple. Great inspiration for this Easter, I’m thinking maybe add some bling as well! Hugs, Catherine (newest follower of all your bloggieland adventures!) 🙂

    Visiting from Skip to my Lou’s Link Party. Love these little Easter eggs, different to the other Easter egg DIY’s going around. Anything using a glue gun and I’m in!
