Family-Made Easter Garland, Mantle and More Egg Ideas
To make the garland, I made a template on Word (I saved it as a pdf so everyone would be able to open it). Then I gave them to Hazel to decorate. Steve and I helped her and I decorated some more when she got bored. We used watercolors, tissue paper, stickers, fake flowers, ribbon. We didn't bother using crayons or markers basically because she wasn't in the mood. After they dried I used her glitter glue to write on each one. After that had dried I punched two holes in each one and strung them on ribbon.
had started awhile ago. It was much quicker with the hot glue gun.
The Sweet Survival.
Hazel decorated some of the eggs with her glitter glue. It is still drying and to be honest a bit hard to see since she used white glitter glue on everything. We'll try that again tomorrow. Maybe I'll hide the white.
I added all the Easter decorations and crafts we have been doing to our mantle and took down the Valentines and it is looking much more festive including the pink tulip fairy I did awhile ago. Now she has wings. I also added the pink bucket to our Lenten table.
Well with St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, I guess we better get working on some more green things. For some reason we haven't been that into it this year. Sorry to my dear Irish grandmother. I hope you will join us for Sharing Saturday!!
