Create beautiful global easter eggs with a Moroccan wedding blanket inspired DIY part of A Very Global Easter series with Casa Watkins Living.
Days are flying fast this week! It’s already time for our third globally influenced Easter DIY for A Very Global Easter series. If you are popping over from Casa Watkins Living, welcome. We are military family stationed overseas so I love to share global eclectic and renter friendly DIYs, decorating tips, and inspiration. Today’s DIY is Easter eggs. Yesterday I shared my DIY washi eggs on a Global Easter Tree but today I decided to create something a bit more crazy.
Moroccan Wedding Blanket Inspired Easter Eggs
What you need for Moroccan Wedding Blanket eggs:
- Plastic eggs (large and small)
- Spray paint (white and gold)
- Mini white fringe, silver fringe, silver sequin string, black and white cording, loose woven yarn (embellishments from the dollar store)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
How to create global style Easter eggs:
Or watch me make Moroccan Wedding Blanket Eggs live on youtube!
Spray paint large plastic eggs white and small eggs with gold. Use 2 light coats with 30 minutes drying time in between. Let completely dry for at least 2-3 hrs.
For the large eggs:
Start by hot glueing yarn (I used a loose woven yarn that’s about an 3/4 wide) around the egg. Cover the egg completely or try variations like covering one half, just the middle, or just the ends.
Embellish with decorative tape, fringe, sequins and cording by wrapping the material 1-3 times around a section of the egg. Keep in place with a dot of glue where needed. The majority of the egg should be covered in white materials and limit the other small pops of color to black and white, blush pink, and silver.
For the small gold eggs:
Glue trim around the middle to hide where the two eggs half meet.
Aren’t the pretty? I just love the textures of the materials and they truly remind me of moroccan wedding blankets. What do you think?
I have them sitting next to our sofa with a couple of plants. My floral pillow really draws out the small bits of pink from the eggs.
If you love these, pin them for later!
