Making seasonal projects is such a joy filled process. I enjoy making things, no matter how simple, with my own two hands. In a time where it’s easy to get buried behind our phones or computers; taking time to create is just necessary for the soul.
Over the weekend I made a few sequin Easter eggs using styrofoam eggs. I purchased the kits at an after holiday sale a few years ago and thought they would be fun to make.
My kit came with sequins in blue and pink, plastic pins, foam eggs, blue ribbon and a pink bow. You can purchase all these items individually too and therefore design the look you are after.
This project isn’t hard, only a little tedious. The end results are pretty and therefore worth it. My daughter came running when I sat down to get started. I was hesitant because the parts are small, but she really enjoyed handing me the colors I needed and I’m glad she got to be included. My son even jumped in to help too!
- Foam eggs
- Sequin pins
1. Insert a sequin pin into hole of sequin and press it into foam egg. You can choose a design or be totally random.
2. Continue putting sequins onto egg form until it’s covered.
3. Cut a piece of ribbon and use pins to get it to stay inplace. Add a small ribbon bow at this time if you’d like to.
These eggs look great in a basket/bowl or even hanging from an Easter tree if that’s your thing. They sparkle and add a festive touch to your home.
