We are super excited about this one! (yes I know we say that just about every time)!
Here’s what we used:
- 49 Natural Wooden Beads
- 1 Pkg of Plastic Eggs from the Dollar Tree
- 2 Wooden Bunnies from Dollar Tree
- Sanding Sponge
- Waverly Antique Wax from Walmart
- White Paint
- Paint Brush
- Decorative Ribbon/ Ric Rac
- 2 White Pom Poms
Start with opening your eggs. They will already have one hole in them. At this point you can put another hole on the skinny end of the egg. I used a drill and drill bit. It easily made the holes without splitting the egg. You could probably poke a hole with something sharp, but be very careful.
Next, I painted each egg with the white acrylic paint from Walmart. It took about 3 coats. The dowel helped to hold the egg while I painted it.
Once dry, I used the sanding sponge to lightly sand some areas on the eggs. You can skip this step if you’d like.
Next, I applied the antique wax. Then, more white paint on top to get an antique heavily distressed look.
Once you finish with your eggs, it’s time to start stringing your beads. I found that it was easiest to use a long yarn needle that could reach all the way through each egg.
I used 7 beads between each egg. Putting a white bead right in the center.
Adding the white bead was an after thought. I thought it looked a lot better with it. You can paint one of the natural beads white easily using the same technique you used to paint the eggs.
TASSEL TIME! I used some decorative ribbon I had on hand to add to the jute.
BUNNIES! Wooden Bunnies add the PERFECT little touch to the tassels! Every BUNNY needs a Cotton Tail!!!
