Craft for kids: coffee filter Easter eggs

I found this fun idea on Crafty Crow. I cut coffee filters into egg shapes. The kids had fun using watercolors to decorate them.

Ruffle Fabric Easter Egg Shirt


Ruffle Fabric Easter Egg Shirt
I've been itching to use this great fabric I ordered from Ruffle Fabric and I think I found the perfect project.



These two little Easter eggs made out of Ruffle Fabric put a smile on my little girls face today. And of course I had to add a little ribbon rosette!


She couldn't wait to put it on this morning!


My camera battery died on me so I couldn't photograph this and write up a tutorial for you. Go visit Positively Splendid for the basic idea. Hers is a little different because she makes the ruffles for the shirt while my ruffles are pre-made!! Her tutorial is great!

I cut out the egg shapes from the ruffle fabric and sewed them on. Pretty simple.

Thanks for visiting today!
I'm linking up to the parties in my link parties tab.

Book Page Easter Eggs

Book Page Easter Eggs
This project was inspired by an Inspire Me Monday entry. If it was yours can you please let me know so I can link to you. I can't seem to find it now.
I've been trying to get this post written for weeks. I had a lot of fun making these eggs. I love using Mod Podge.


If you want to make some of your own you'll need some book pages, leftover plastic Easter eggs, Mod Podge and a brush.


Tear your book pages into strips of paper. Apply Mod Podge to egg and add your strip of paper. Cover the paper with Mod Podge.


Continue until your eggs are covered.



At first I added two two-inch fabric flowers (available here) but I didn't like how they looked.


So I added some rick rack and some little rick rick rosettes. Much better.



Happy Easter all! Have a great weekend with your families.

Annabelle's finished project, age 4.

Dashiell's finished project, age 2.

Annabelle turned these hand prints into flowers. She surprises me all the time when she comes up with these ideas.
Of course, Dashiell loved this idea. Any excuse to make a mess!

What's new at Belle Rose Designs?


Just some shameless self promotion.
I have been making rosettes like crazy and have added several to Belle Rose Designs for you to use any way you like.




Take a look at all my fabric flower rosettes here. I'll be adding more too and I'm always happy to do custom orders.

Have a happy Friday!
