Back from Atlanta. It was a great show and we met so many nice people! Well as promised, some basic directions for creating some very pretty Easter Eggs for hanging. A bare branch from outside is a nice way to hang them, no need to go looking for that special tree. I was lucky enough to find one that actually had a bird nest in it! Cute addition! I perched a little yellow chick on it.
I found the eggs I'm using at Pier One. These were a good find because they are styrofoam which means
you can poke your wire into the center for hanging. They did not look like they were styrofoam because
there was a hard coating over it. I removed whatever they had at the top to hang it with and there was
a nice opening to stick a wire into! I added glue to the wire to be sure it held. You can probably get plain old white styrofoam eggs and decorate them, I haven't tried that yet.

(5) I put a coating of Crystal Lacquer over the Posies, let dry and then put a coating on the backside
before cutting out. This will give a nice gloss and make the Posy more durable.
(6) I cut out along the edges and poked a small hole in the center to put the wire through. I used the wires from Flower Soft that we also offer on our website. They are white and very fine and pliable.
