This is what I have for you today...a pretty egg! Yay! And to top it off its super easy...BIG YAY! Below is the final product to get you excited for the building process. My mom made these when I was a kid and they were always my favorite ornament on the Christmas tree. Well she finally showed me how to do them the other day and I was over the moon excited to try them out. Like seriously excited! I thought these were made from fabric and I was thinking they were going to be super hard but boy was I wrong!
- 1 1/2 inch ribbon (a whole spool)
- styrafoam egg (any size you want, I used the larger egg)
- flat top stick pins (make sure they are point on the end and not straight)
- Decorative ribbon, any kind you want
- Hot Glue
To start, cut a bunch of ribbon in 1 1/2 inch strips. Start with about 20 then cut more if you need it. If you are using a smaller egg maybe dont cut as many to begin with.
Once you have all your strips cut you can start pinning them to the egg. To start pinning, you want to start at the bottom of the egg (the smallest end) and make 4 points to cover the styrafoam. I did the 2 sides facing each other then the other 2 sides and that seems to work best for me, but do whatever works for you. To get the ribbon the nice pointy look make a triangle fold on the ribbon length-wise. Press the edges down and make a good crease. Flip the triangle over and use 2 stick pins to hold the ribbon in place on the egg. I used one pin in each corner but if you want to do just one in the center that works too.
I know the picture looks a mess but doenst the final product look so pretty!
