How to make a Rhinestone Easter Egg Door Decoration
I love springtime with the warmer weather, longer daylight hours, arrival of robins and Easter eggs! Your door is the first thing that visitors see when they home to your house so why not make a cheerful first impression with a do it yourself Easter door hanging!
For this project I used:
Small plastic eggs (approximately 2 inches long)
Assorted colors 12ss rhinestones
Wax tipped tool or tweezers
I used 6 little plastic eggs (approximately 2 inches in length) in assorted colors. Cut a piece of lace 5 ½ inches long for each egg you plan on using. Cut 6 more pieces if lace in the following lengths: 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 inches.
You can use a hot glue gun for adhering the lace if you wish but then use Gem Tac for gluing the rhinestones. Do not use a hot glue gun for gluing rhinestones.
I used Gem Tac for gluing the lace. Glue the 5 ½ piece of lace the length of the egg on both sides. Do this for all the eggs and allow to dry.
Glue the other piece of lace on the opposite side down the length and up the other side leaving a tail of lace at the top of the egg. Do this for all the eggs and allow to dry completely.
Embellish the eggs along the length of the lace using rhinestones. Place a drop of glue about the size of the rhinestone on the lace and using the wax tipped tool or tweezers pick up a rhinestone and gently press it into the glue. Glue should seep out the sides to form a seal. Continue gluing until all the eggs are embellished. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
To make a bow, cut a piece of lace about 36 inches in length (if you like more loops in your bow, cut a longer piece). Leaving a tail of about 1 ½ inches, gather the ribbon into loops about 3 inches in length leaving a tail at the other end. Wrap the base of the bow with craft wire (about 5 inches in length) to secure leaving a “tail” of about 1 ½ inches of wire.
Starting with the egg with the longest lace tail, lay the lace pieces on top of one another from longest to shortest
Secure the pieces together and to the bow using the tail of the wire on the bow. Wrap the wire around and tuck the ends in.
You now have the perfect ornament to welcome both visitors and Spring!
