2. Once you are happy with the body, use tiny hair elastics to hold everything together

3. Add more fluff to the inside of the sock to make the bunny’s head.(The head should be slightly smaller than the body) then pinch together the top of the sock, and add elastic to hold it in place.

4. For the nose, Use a pink pony bead with 3 short pieces of white yarn pulled through the bead.

5. Next, cut out a small rectangle of white felt and cut a small slit in one side to make teeth.

String Easter Eggs

You will need:

Embroidery Floss

Elmer’s glue

 

Instructions:

1. Blow up some balloons

2. Cut arm-lengths of embroidery floss- use about 6-8 for each balloon.

3. Mix up a bowl of glue with enough water (add a small amount at a time), to make it just runny enough to soak into the embroidery thread.

4. Take a piece of your thread and dunk it into the bowl of water glue, pressing it in all the way so that the whole length of the thread gets nice and saturated.

5. Grab an end of the thread and wring it out between your fingers as you pull it from the bowl.

6. Now wrap it around the balloon,

7. Clip the balloons to the drying rack with a clothes pin – just make sure they aren’t touching each other.

8. After a few hours, your string will have dried and you can pop the balloons

*Decide if you want to display your string eggs in a lovely bowl, or tie embroidery thread and hang them.
