This is my kind of Easter bouquet...

My youngest and her husband are living with us this summer. Last week they graduated together with their bachelor degrees. They'll be having their baby in June and will be starting law school in August, so they are living with us for the summer before they move back east. Here's a picture of them at graduation. (I can't take any credit for the one on the left, but I birthed the one on the right, so I'll unabashedly ask, "Is she adorable or what?!?")

Yesterday my daughter and I had two projects going on. Mine ended up in the trash, and hers ended up on display. I won't bother to show you the details of my sad project, but let's take a look at my daughter's fast, inexpensive, and adorable creations...

All you need are these materials. Like us, you might have most of these on-hand:

Tissue paper - variety of colors
Mod Podge
Paint brush
Paper mache eggs ($.39 each at hobby stores)

From those materials these cute Easter eggs are constructed...

Just coat the paper mache eggs with some Mod Podge and apply some white tissue paper. Apply Mod Podge over the top of the white tissue paper and add strips of colored tissue paper. Apply Mod Podge over the top of the colored paper and let dry! (Option: Sprinkle a little clear glitter over colored tissue paper before the Mod Podge dries.)

This is a fun, easy project that is so inexpensive and cute!

This is cute! I'm looking to make some Easter centerpieces myself. I have three planned, but I might try something like this too. I actually have the smaller version of those paper mache eggs too.

Good evening, Suzanne,
Congratulations to the graduates. You are sooo lucky to have her and her hubby living with you for a few weeks. ...And the baby will be born while she is with you? Wow, it can't get any better than that!

Have a wonderful weekend. ~Natalie
