Gift idea for Easter Decoration by Kerstin

Hello creative friends!

It's a difficult time for all of us and everyone is grateful for a little joy and distraction.  One must also see and hear something different than just the latest news and try to discover the positive sides of this crisis.

I was inspired to create a small THANK YOU gift for a very helpful friend. It's a little Easter egg for spring home decoration. It can be set up individually or arranged in an Easter nest.

Basic  materials
and Calico Craft Parts used:

3 Oval Shape - MDF Mixed Media Board in two different sizes

Trefoil Border Shape - MDF Mixed Media Board

Cockrell Crowing

Ivy Leaf Corner Garland

some leftovers for fixing the stand


 How to create simple studs:

1. use the biggest oval shape and glue on some leftover strips 
or a rectangle shape which you can cut into several parts

2.  for better stability it is advisable to glue on several strips;
I have glued two strips offset to the front side and only one to the back side

3. when the glue has well dried, glue everything onto another laid out smaller oval shape

4. if you want to place the egg separately it looks very decorative 
if you add another Trefoil Border Shape under it

some close up's

I hope I could inspire you  to take some time out and treat yourself to something good,
 something that is fun and enjoyable and helps to recharge the empty battery.

Hope you are all safe and well!!

Happy crafting!

  1. I always admire how cleverly you're using the Craft Parts to create stands and platforms and shelves and such, Kerstin!
    Great use of the Craft Parts and Easter Shabby-nes at its best!
