Bo Bunny Easter Egg Tutorial

Hello everyone! Today I have a tutorial to share with you on how to create Easter Eggs using Styrofoam eggs and Bo Bunny Blossoms and Petals. When the Blossoms were first released I knew I wanted to use them to create an altered art or home decor project and with Easter right around the corner, I was inspired to use them to decorate some Easter Eggs.  I had a vision in my head of pastel Easter Eggs covered with glitter glass and gorgeous flowers. I think the end result achieved my vision! Below you will find a video tutorial on how I created the eggs. I will show you how I took the Styrofoam egg and transformed it into the lovelies you see in the photos.  In the video I also share how I created the smaller flowers using Bo Bunny Petals to accent the larger Bo Bunny Blossoms. 







I also decorated the basket with Bo Bunny Lace in coordinating colors!


Spring is coming, but until then I think I will just craft a little of it into my world! How about you? I hope you enjoy the video tutorial and I would love to hear any feedback you might have as well as any questions about this project or any other I have created.
