I know, Easter is over but I thought I would share a burst of craftiness. I lovingly call this “Family Night Flop.” I saw this cute idea on a fun blog (click for details) and thought I would try it for Family Night.
Scott wanted to know how the candy would get inside the egg. Brittany had homework but came to check our progress occasionally. Zane was busy with his cars. However, Morgan patiently waited while I dug out some fabric scraps and cut them to fit the eggs. Then she rolled up her sleeves and prepared to get messy.
After one egg I realized this was not as simple as it looked. I tried a couple on my own and still could not get the fabric to lay smooth on the egg. We gave up and went to bed.
After a few days, with the undecorated eggs still sitting on my table, I came up with an alternative. (I do not like to be defeated.) I cut my fabric into small pieces (square-ish) and, in true modge-podge fashion, we covered the eggs. The fabric stuck much better and we ended up with a cute basket of decorated eggs. I was feeling pretty proud of myself and then Morgan’s friend came over to play and asked how I was going to get the candy inside the egg. Humm. . . nobody appreciates art these days.
