Easter Egg Bouquet

 In an attempt to 'Easter up' the house a bit (and use up some of the many plastic eggs Trouble has accumulated) I made an Easter egg bouquet using stuff I already had around the house.


 What you need:
  • plastic eggs (with the little holes)
  • wooden skewers
  • ribbon to make a bow
  • vase

What you do:

Do you see the little holes in the egg?

Push the pointed end of a skewer through a hole.

Repeat skewering eggs.

Start arranging the eggs in a vase.

Cut skewers if needed.

Keep arranging until the vase is full of eggs.

Add a bow.
 Now I'm just going to hope that Mr.Perfect doesn't need those bbq skewers anytime soon.
