My interpretation of steam punk would be shabby chic meets industrial.
My sister and brother-n-law hosted Easter last year and had an Easter egg decorating competition.
For my entry I decided to use all recycled materials. David’s old jeans (he wants his blog name to be Ernie) and parts from old electronics.
I hid my name on a matching tag so the judges didn’t know who owned the egg.
I hot glued a jean flower and decorated the center with gears and small springs.
The pink plastic egg is sitting all comfy on Easter grass, in a jean basket and on a doily my Great Aunt crocheted.
The handle to the basket is made from the seam, down the leg of the jeans.
I “dressed up” a stainless cake stand with a big bow. I incorporated a hole that was in the old work jeans. “We’ll call that character.”
This was a tough competition and the creativity was over the top. All the eggs had lots of great personality, just like all of our loved ones at the Easter gathering. As always, a fun time was had by all.
Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
