Easter Cookie Bouquet

This is my first cookie bouquet and it is serving two purposes...it's a centerpiece and dessert too! It will be on our Easter lunch table tomorrow...yes, it will be eaten!! I am making more because I have some other recipes to try out before making a few for some friends as "thank you" gifts. I may even do a tutorial on how to make one! Thanks for looking!

One more winged cutie!!




Here is a picture I took back in 2002 of my great niece, Clara. I added some glow to her skin, a floral wreath and some cute butterfly wings. Isn't she cute!!

Next project...Make your own graduation invites/announcements!

Fun Easter Project for kids to make!

This is an easy and fun project to try with your kids. I teach art to two grade school boys on Thursdays. They made a bouquet for their mom and one for their grandmother! Here is a pic of one I made to "test" the project out first.


On the link, scroll down a bit to view instructions. There are some other cute spring/Easter projects to try also!

Scroll down to view project pics and directions. I used some yellow foamies for the flower centers as I did not have yellow pipe cleaners. I cut a strip about 1/2" x 4-1/2" and bent in the middle and secured with green pipe cleaner. Then cut each side into thirds.
