Hey there! It’s Jess from Live Randomly Simple. I am SOOO excited to be here today with you and Chelsey to share this super simple Easter craft.–moss covered eggs! A few weeks ago I did a post on How to Cover Anything in Moss and I figured I should do another project to give you some more examples of just how easy it is.
You only need three things for this project: Moss Ribbon (affiliate link), hot glue, and plastic eggs. Oh, how I love simple decor projects that are quick and inexpensive.
I raided last year’s plastic egg stock pile. Seriously, I had two bags full of eggs because my little one refused to let me get rid of any! But, I am glad I didn’t because I have done 3 projects with those eggs in the past few weeks and I haven’t even put a dent in the supply! Anyway, let’s get to it! I started by cutting the moss ribbon into 1-inch strips.
Then I added some hot glue to the section the strip will be going. Press it down and mold it into place. That is one of my favorite things about moss ribbon…it bends and molds so easily that when you are done, you can’t tell where the second are because it looks like one giant piece of moss!
Keep going the whole way around the egg shaping the strips into place.
When you get almost done you may see a few spots like this. Just cut small sections of the ribbon to fill in larger holes. On the tiny holes I just glued in pieces of moss that fell off of the ribbon.
See..can you tell where one strip ends and the next starts? Its so dreamy looking!
I did three eggs for this project. Then I spray painted 1 egg gold and wrapped a piece of twine around the center to cover up the line in the egg. After all we don’t want anyone to know they were cheap plastic eggs. That sucker is pure gold if anyone asks!
I even made this basket to set them in! You can find the tutorial for that here.
So that’s it. Super simple Easter decor that takes minutes to make, and other than the moss ribbon I am sure you DIYers already have the rest of the supplies! I had fun sharing this with you today and I hope you stop by for a visit someday!!
Have a wonderful Easter!
