How about some eggs?

My daughter's teacher is very creative, and she decorated her classroom super cute this year.  The theme is Dr. Seuss.  It has inspired me all year...remember the Dr. Seuss Christmas tree?  Well, we had a little celebration back in March for her birthday, and I used that theme.  But, I realized I hadn't shared it with you all, so here is a super quick tutorial for some "Green Egg" decorations. 

Supplies Needed:
White Fun Foam
Thick Sharpie
Easter Eggs
Hot Glue Gun and Hot Glue

Step 1:  Draw out your eggs on the white fun foam using a regular writing pen.  Remember this is Seuss, there is no wrong way to draw them.  I drew out two eggs per sheet.

Step Two:  Cut out the eggs you drew using regular scissors.

Step Three:  Pull apart a green Easter egg and snip the connection with scissors, if it has one.

Step 4: Outline the eggs with a thick Sharpie.  Remember to make the lines kind of "wonky" to capture Seuss.  Did you noticed in one of the pics above I also had slick puff paint out?  That's because I had considered using it initially.  I think that would have been a good option for outlining the eggs too.  I'm all about dimension, but I was under a time crunch and settled for the fast drying time of a Sharpie!

Step 5:  Hot glue the Easter egg yolk making sure to change it up a bit with each egg.  Don't always put the yolk in the center.

And you are finished!  These were for the table, but wouldn't these be cute made of foam core and wired to a tree?  "Green Eggs & Ham" Christmas tree perhaps?

Thanks for stopping by!
