Are you ready for some Pinterest goodness?
I missed out on the last one because I couldn't get my butt in gear fast enough. I did eventually post a Pin-spiration, the pinecone map ornament - better late than never, right?
This time I knew what I was going for. At least a month ago I bought some styrofoam eggs from the dollar store. How's that for planning? Then I forgot about them. That's more like me. But this past weekend when my sewing machine broke down and I had to buy a new one, a walk through the yarn department reminded me of those poor lonely eggs and my plan for them.
Here is my inspiration:
So we hunkered down to clear off some of the 15+ hours of programming on the DVR while I wrapped eggs in yarn. Regular Monday night, right?
I decided to use plain white glue instead of hot glue, mostly to reduce the number of burns I'd receive. Reduced it to zero! Go me!
It was a little slower though as you have to wait for the glue to dry a bit or the yarn will slide around. I started by gluing the end of the yarn to the bottom of the egg, and then winding it around in a circular pattern.
Three eggs (bwah-ha-ha!):
All the eggs:
I did have six eggs to work with but ran out of time. I'll finish the other two later this week and get them displayed. I might even work in some terracotta hues to pull in the tile around the fireplace.
I hope you'll head over to the hosts' sites to see what everyone came up with this time. Everyone has such great ideas and awesome projects. You can't help but be inspired to create something new.
I'm linking up here this week!
