We found this incredibly cute Easter craft for kids and adults. Beautiful and easy-to-make...perfect for the occasion!
You can hang these little swingers anywhere in the house.
- Hole punch
- 1/4-inch-wide ribbon
- Colored tissue paper
- Pinking shears or decorative-edge craft scissors
- Blown eggs
- Glue stick
- Colored feathers
- Colored card stock
- Cut 3 pieces of ribbon, each about 9 inches long. Thread an end of each piece through a hole in the carton and knot it, then tie the other ends of the ribbons together.
- Cut two 2- by 6-inch rectangles of tissue paper, one with the pinking shears. Lay the pinked rectangle on top of the other. Wrap the papers around a blown egg so that the pinked edge peeks out from behind the straight edge. Secure with the glue stick.
- Place the wrapped egg in the cradle. Use the glue stick to attach a small tuft of feather and a card stock beak and eyes to the egg. Make pupils on the eyes with the marker.
