Flat and Fancy Hanging Egg Decorations
I decorate my living room window for each holiday. These are so simple, easy and "sort of" fast. Just a few steps and you can decorate any window like this one!
Total Time: 1 hour prep, 3 hours dry time.
Yield: 24 forms, 12 eggs
- 12 pieces bright fabric of your choice ($.25)
- 1 egg shaped template
- 1/8 cup homemade Mod Podge ($.10)
- foam brush
- hole punch
- With fabric scraps about 5" by 7", make sure the fabric pieces are together and using the template, cut 24 eggs. As you can see by the photo, I was able to cut 4 layers of fabric at a time.
- When all the shapes are done, I ironed them before stiffening with the mod podge.
- Home made mod podge is 1 cup glue and exactly 1/3 cup water. I used foil sheets to protect the ironing board and for ease of removal when the glue had dried. With a foam brush, I spread glue on the egg shapes and went away for about 3 hours.
- When the glue has dried, the fabric will be like paper. You can cut it without fraying, and it will remain stiff as long as it's kept dry. I peeled the eggs off the foil and laid them on the ironing board.
- Now this is just what I did, but you don't have to. My neighbors see the other side of my window so I wanted each egg to be unique. I matched the front of one to the front of another but at the end of the row of eggs. Flipping the other one over so the front shows, each egg now has a front and a back that are different. With a hole punch, you can match the eggs, facing opposite, and make the hole about 1/2" from the top. If the fabric didn't get enough glue, it might need a bit of help with scissors, but for the most part the hole punch worked great.
- I do my window by hanging things from 12 yarn strands. N-JOY!!
