photo of my faux sugar easter egg wreath

oddieMarch 7, 2007

thought you might like to see my wreath, I used diamond dust on the eggs as the sugar, and stufed all the holes between the eggs with a sparkle filler ,saw that idea on another fourn where the crafter used the green easter grass.

what do you think? did I get carried away with the filler and diamond dust?

It's Gorgeous Oddie, really beautiful. No, you didn't use too much of either the Diamond Dust or the filler, it's perfect, along with the perfect bow. Excellent job my friend.

That turned out really nice Oddie. That filler is perfect with it, and you did a great job on the bow. Are those the pull apart eggs, or did you find solid ones? Is it on a styrofoam base? Inquiring minds want to know! LOL Luvs

Thank you! glad you liked it!
Luvs I used 2 lg circle cut from a pizza box, glued together for strength, the eggs are the pull apart and had small holes I tried to cover, got them at the junk store, two lg bags for $1 so had to try, I bet some dimensional paint would look cute on the eggs ,little dots with different lines, alot of time but so cute.
I did the dimond dust after I glued the eggs in place, didnt want to waste it incase it didnt look good, and didnt have to cover the whole egg.
you guys made me laugh about the ribbon, it gave me fits!
Thanks agine!

Thank you! glad you liked it, had tried makeing one years ago but could not get the eggs on to where it looked nice, the grass makes all the difference, so I give credit to who ever came up with that idea!
Jackie and cheri havent seen any post from you guys in awhile, always love seeing your crafts!

Thanks agine! I had thought of adding a washcloth bunny head ,have seen a few wreaths with the bunnies, and they are cute! also you could fill the holes with some kind of small flowers, just a few ideas to pass on. please post photos of your wreath chickencollecter and anyone else who makes one, love seeing them.

cute...did you glue the eggs to the cardboard?

i have the "Trash to Treasure" books and they squash empty soda cans so that the top meets the bottom, they paint them white and add rabbit ears and stuff..they are cute.
