Seasonal Fun + DIY: HAPPY EASTER

Hello Dolls!
Happy Easter Weekend :) 

I hope the Easter Bunny has come and visited your home and left many yummy treats for you to enjoy! 

I am still continuing to learn how to design my own graphics. The decorated Easter Egg graphic is my creation, I used Pixalmator to create them. I will be uploading a tutorial shortly on how to turn your own drawing into a graphic with Pixalmator, so look out for that! 

I hope to continue learning and improving at graphics so I can start offering free graphics for your personal use on blogs and websites too! So keep giving me feedback and tips on how I can continue improving my graphic design skills!  

Now for the Easter fun! I have a cute DIY Easter Eggs made from embroidery floss :) I used pastel colours since it fits in better with the occasion. Feel free to put your own creative spin on them. 

NOTE: Something occurred and I lost my pictures :( and I am very short on time to start all over. I have taken some examples from the internet to give you an idea and inspiration!

Image from: 
  • Embroidery Floss (One pack for each egg)
  • White liquid school glue + Water
  • Small balloons (water balloon sized I think work best!)
  • Scissors 
  • Newspaper/Disposable container
  • Imagination!
Step 1: Decide on how many eggs you want to create and then inflate that number of balloons
Step 2: Put some of the school glue onto some newspaper or disposable bowl.
Step 3: Begin running your embroidery floss through the glue and start wrapping it around the balloon! (TIP: neatly unravel your embroidery floss first so you do not run into knots as you are creating your beautiful egg!)
Step 4: Once you are happy with the design you have created with the embroidery floss on the balloon, snip the yarn and set aside your creation to dry!
Step 5: After your egg has dried, go ahead and pop that balloon with a pin or scissors! Carefully remove the balloon remnants and VOILA! You have a cute adorable yarn egg :) 

If you want to take it to the next level, you could make a lot of eggs and glue them together into a wreath or you could cut holes in them and put a bit of candy in them as a basket :)

Enjoy the weekend with your family
