Mosaic Eggs and Sock Bunnies


I'm all about fast and easy when it comes to crafts. Here are two quick but cute spring crafts we've made this week. The sock bunnies were a HUGE hit. Even my little boys who think they are too cool for crafts loved them. They each made up a name and described where their bunny lived, what it eats, and more!
Mosaic Eggs and Sock Bunnies


Mosaic Eggs
Here's what you'll need:
  1. Construction paper

  4. Colored tissue paper cut into small pieces  
                                                                                                 
Directions
  1. Cut out an oval out of construction paper. I just happen to have a container shaped like an egg.
  2. Cut out and remove the inner portion of the egg leaving about an inch border.
  3. Cut out a piece of contact paper and peel the backing off.
  4. Lay the egg frame on top of the sticky side of the contact paper.
