A year ago my girls spent a happy afternoon making these banners to decorate the house for Easter – such is life with a small person in the house, I’ve only just got round to blogging them.
The template for the eggs was just a Hama Bead Egg board, something we can always find in the house! They drew round them on to felt in various colours and spent a happy day embellishing them with additional pieces of felt (draw some extra eggs, cut them out and then cut them up to make them fit neatly if you want stripes etc), buttons, beads, ribbon and ric-rac gleaned from our haberdashery shop at SimpleCraftShop
Once made, we glued them on to long lengths of ribbon and hung them on doors and curtain rails for Easter. While it is fair to say their technique might needs some work (ragged edges etc probably won’t make them a runaway Pinterest hit!) they learned loads about colour, design, embellishing, sewing, patience and neatness along the way.
It’s fair to.
