This has been one of my favorite crafts

Water balloons.
Embroidery floss.
Starch.






















Let them dry overnight and viola! String eggs to hang on my stick holiday tree.





I am a little stumped as to what should be hung on here now. I am thinking about tiny, cheerful Quilt blocks.

Or maybe some little embroidered flowers? The next real "holiday" is either Memorial Day or Independence Day and I can use flags for both of those... Any ideas?

Oh, yeah, that is a darling idea. I'm totally going to steal it from you....next year.

I got the comments fixed just for you, hon, so give it try when you have time.

Love this. I wish I had thought to do this in Kindergarten before Easter. I will file it away in my idea drawer. Thanks!
