As Easter approaches, I’ve started to see pastel colored Styrofoam eggs in stores. They reminded me of a blog post done by one of my favorite Japanese bloggers, Umeko. A while back, she had posted adorable photos of her balloon shop in her Sylvanian village………Hang on, did you just skip that link? If you just skipped the link to her page, I strongly recommend you think again! Umeko’s blog is filled with the cutest Sylvanian photos!! She has such a talent for putting together the scenes that just scream, “CUTE!!!” I can’t tell you how much time I have spent staring at her photos!
Anyway, so she had flipped over a Styrofoam Easter egg, added a bead, and had stuck a wire to make it look like a balloon on a string. I thought it was the smartest craft I had ever seen!
I have found a bag full of Styrofoam eggs at a dollar store. I can paint them and make any color I want!
