DIY Easter Eggs in Party Hats

I’m so excited about these quick little DIY Easter Eggs.  Eggs are just so cute with little faces on.  Last year, I gave the darlings little floral crowns. This year, I thought they needed some party hats!  And, of course, they need a DIY floral backdrop, like any good, blog-crazy, diy-doing eggs.

I have to say, coming across the pansies in the grocery store made my day.  I am so ready for spring, and Easter always makes me excited for the promise of summer. I just knew they had to be part of my little scene.

Making the little party hats was super fun and quick with the little party hat template and a pair of fringe scissors.

:: Print out party hat template and adjust scale to suit your egg size.  Draw around template with a pencil on desired decorative paper. Shape the template into a cone and use craft glue to secure a 1/8″ overlapping edge.
:: Cut out 1″ x 6″ strips of tissue paper from a stack of 4 layers.  Use fringe scissors (I have to say these are awesome!) or regular scissors to fringe both edges of the strip.
:: Fold the fringe strip in half with one end sticking up higher than the other.
:: With fringe pointing upward, use craft glue to secure the fringe strip to the edge of the hat.
:: Cut a smaller strip 1″ x 3″ and fringe both edges similar to above to make the top pom pom. Spin the fringe around the top of the hat securing with glue.
:: For little tufts, cut even smaller strips and spin them into little poms and secure with glue.

To make the floral backdrop, simply use a needle and thread to go through the stems of the flowers. Knot one end of the thread and use the other end of the thread to hang the blooms.  I hung the flowers from three lines of thread hung above the eggs heads.
