Easter Egg Spin Art Garland

We used one of our favourite methods of painting to create a beautiful spin art Easter egg garland!
I cut some simple egg shapes from coloured card and dug out our paint-stained salad spinner!

 The girls knew exactly what to do and even selected their own paints. Of course, the glitter paints were top choice!

They dropped an egg shape into the basket, secured underneath with a piece of blu-tac, and then liberally squeezed paint splurges on top.
Then the lid went on and they did their best to spin as fast as they could!

 And, as always with spin art, the results were varied and beautiful!

 I love this sunny one! Gorgeous.

Here they are laid out to dry in the sun.

 As usual when we get the salad spinner out, we can’t stop! So we made zillions between us!

 A few times the eggs flew off their central position and ended up stuck to the inside of the basket. Those were some of my favourites!

 Once they were all dry I sewed through the tops using a needle and thread, securing the thread behind each with a piece of tape so that they wouldn’t slip.

 They look pretty hanging in the window and the girls keep pointing them out and telling us that they made them :-)

 These would also look fabulous stuck to the front of an Easter card.

    They are gorgeous! I saved the one that haas 8 eggs in it for my desktop picture–hope that was OK! Great spinning-guys!

    I love the pictures! Still need to buy an extra salad spinner in order to give this a try. Not too keen on using our current kitchen one. I’m picturing pink and purple lettuce.. probably won’t work, lol. Debs

    Made these this morning. So easy and lots of fun. My 4 yr loved seeing the results after a really fast spin! They look fantastic and I’m going to hang them as bunting tonight as a surprise for the morning. Thanks for the great idea :)
