Isn’t it interesting how every Spring feels like the very FIRST Spring? On our way to church last weekend we were all marveling at the blossoms on the cherry trees, the tiny leaves sprouting on the lining the road and all of the daffodils popping up in on every corner.
We were so excited, pointing at this tree and that group of flowers. You would have thought we had never seen them before in our lives!
Nothing captures the feeling of ‘new-ness’ quite like the season of Spring.
It’s all about growth…fresh starts…rebirth. I wish I could just bottle up the scent that lingers in the air and carry it around with me so I could inhale it whenever I needed a little pick-me-up.
But, alas, I’ll have to settle for trying to capture the season through crafts!
Hot glue gun
Directions: Simply pull or clip the flowers off the stems and using your hot glue gun, attach to the foam eggs being sure to nestle the flowers closely together. Work your way around the egg until it’s completely covered and then attach a ribbon to the top with hot glue gun.
Place branches (real or faux) in a small bucket or urn and hang your flower eggs
I clipped this branch from our pie cherry trees in the backyard.
It looks so expectant, doesn’t it? It’s just waiting to burst forth in all of it’s glory.
And, believe me, when it does it is definitely glorious!
But, until then, I will just enjoy my little Flower Easter Eggs dangling from it.
And I will enjoy the inspiration I see bursting forth from others too!
