My daughter Rio and her bf Chase have chickens that lay these not only tasty, but beeeautiful eggs! They come in colors that range from light blue to the most awesome soft green:) So I got to thinkin....these gorgeous eggs would make a fabulous garland! What you'll need:
1 dozen pretty eggs
1 straight pin
Fishing line (or other strong string)
I started by making a hole with the pin on both ends. Then I put my mouth around one end over the hole and blew the egg stuff out. It's kinda harder than it sounds! By the end of this I was dizzy and my cheeks hurt! Took me waaay back to 4th grade when I was learning to play the flute! But for the sake of a cute craft, I wagered on!
Yeah, enter the hubby and his genius idea. No. It didn't work. So suffering, I continued:(
Here they are. Rinsed and free of all their yolky's:)
While the eggs were having some dry time, I cut my ribbon. I have no idea how long I cut them so I put the egg there for scale for ya! I cut 12 of them:) I also cut 2 long (about 15"or so?) pieces for the ends.
I used a doll making needle and threaded it with the fishing line (14 lb. test to be exact) and just weaved in and out of the ribbon a few times. Then I alternated stringing an egg, then another ribbon, egg and so on till I used all 12 eggs.
When I got to the end, I stitched thru the long end pieces and tied the finshing string in a knot. Is any of this making sense? I sooo failed that stupid essay in school when you have to go step by step and tell someone how to make a peanut butter sandwich! :( UGH!
Then I tied my long end pieces in a knot just to add a little pretty:)
Done and done:)
This window is approx (cause I can't spell the whole word) 36" wide:)
Sweet and subtle:) Me likey:)
