The only good thing about af this month, is it seemed to pass pretty quickly. I was super busy most of the week. I went back to my first extra job since I found out I was pregnant for Gabriel. It was on a new tv show called Common Law. In the scene there was a robbery happening and we had to run from the bad guys shooting at the police. I was sore for two days from sprint running for hours. So sad! I jog at the gym on the treadmill but apparently you use different muscles when sprinting!
I also started reading The Hunger Games. I downloaded it on my kindle to bring on the shoot with me and I couldn't put it down. I finished the first booked and had to download the second one right away. That first book leaves you hanging so bad! I yelled, "WHAT! Hows it gonna end like that?"
My other project of the week was making an Easter wreath out of plastic eggs. Yes, I stole the idea off of Pinterest cause I suck at being creative on my own. It was super cheap, maybe $10 total.
Here's Lyla with our finished product!
Start out by cutting 2 circular wreath shapes from cardboard. We always have some hanging in the garage for different projects.
My outer circle was 13inches and 10inches for the inner. I started using scissors but after struggling with the first circle I got up off my lazy butt and went get an X-acto knife. It worked much better! Don't worry if its not perfect. It will just get covered up. Next, hot glue the two circles together to make a sturdier wreath.
After your two circles are together start hot glueing your eggs on. I used the same patterning for the outer eggs. Then inner is mostly random. The only important thing to do is point the eggs the same way. I think I used 45 regular sized eggs. I didn't count but I know at least three were stolen by Lyla.
Keep going until your circle is almost full. The gap is a good thing. Its where the bow will go!
Then, randomly glue eggs in-between the inner and outer eggs. I put hot glue on the fat ends of the inner eggs.
Turn eggs in different directions!
Shove Easter basket grass in the gaps to hide the cardboard.
I used my scissors push the grass in the inner gaps since its a smaller hole.
Cut the longer hanging pieces! It helps to hold it up and let gravity do its thing!
Add the bow and wah la! Have a cute kid be your model!
