The Egg Artist's Workshop; NEW Baskets & Paper for Spring!
What a delightful little egg house by Design Team Member Shannon Cooper! And so many ideas for other projects to make from the same egg shrine from Shannon (in just the first paragraph from her blog post:
The March kit, adorably named Mr. Bunny's Egg House, is (so far) my personal favorite of the many niche shrines available. After one look I pretty much knew what it was going to be, but quickly realized the potential for this little egg. Turn it on its side, add mini grapevine wreath wheels, and make a springtime egg car? Sure. What about having rocket thrusters on the bottom and bunny astronauts inside? I can see it. How about decorating six tiny shrines in different papers to make them look like decorated eggs and spelling EASTER inside the eggs? Add a string and hang it on the mantel or wall! So many ideas!
I loved the idea of Mr. Bunny's Egg House from the outset and went with creating a workshop where Mr. B paints all of the eggs for spring.
Cute Niche Shutters were added to the front along with a scalloped-edge roof and wee flower box. The flower box is simply a few strips of heavy cardstock glued together (and I promise it is, in fact, under all of those flowers).
Beautiful work, Shannon! And be sure to note those tiny (really tiny!) hand painted Easter eggs (sitting on earring backs so you know how tiny they are) in the close-up below.
