Egg Ornaments for Display Stand

Nothing more fun at Easter than a little "pattern play".
Search your "stash" or go shopping for more coordinated
prints or solids, then create your own DOZEN egg ornaments
to dangle from the Egg Tree display stand for holiday decorating.
Embellish with found objects or snippets, photos, charms,
children's artwork, splatter or finger painted sheets, and more.
Use as a "count off" to Easter, or just as colorful accent.
Plain egg shapes are held by four different base shapes:
oval scallop, scallop sawtooth and squiggle.
And here's another option: cut overlays from solids
(or solid-like prints), position, attach and trim to size
for even more variety on your Tree.
One cut file includes all four of the shapes shown here.

Egg Tree Display Stand Assembly

Fun Easter seasonal decor begins with
the sturdy upright pole (reinforced with a 3/4" diameter wood dowel)
which supports three notched arms.
Hang your own Painter Dozen eggs - cut from favorite
patterned paper, or other charms of your choice.
(Egg designs with 4 different base edge shaping,
plus a file that includes the four overlays are available
as separate designs.)
Here you can see the stand on its own.
Optional flower finial decoration completes the top.

Easter Egg Pop Can Tabs Card

 Create a unique Easter "hollow" egg card with
pop can tab window edge and ribbon decoration
that brings to mind the scenic sugar eggs of past holidays.
Card measures approx. 5x7 when the hinged back is closed
in place. Aluminum tabs are laced in place with soft twine
perle cotton or 6-ply floss, using a blunt needle inserted
through the inner and outer series of needle holes.
Here the card is shown with a special,
coordinated insert that peeks through the window
to express "happy Easter" with layered grassy bottom accent.
