Eggs on a Stick

I have had this idea in my head for a year now.  I thought of it last year, but, I had no one to drill my holes.  I asked my husband to do it, but, he was/is so busy with my daughters softball and his parents, he really had no time.  So, just last week, I was in the garage and saw the drill.  How hard could it be??  I found drill bits and at least an hour later, I figured out how to change the drill bit.  I plugged it in, started it, and thought that it really isn't that scary.  When I told my son that I was going to drill holes in my wood pieces, he asked me how I was going to hold them while drilling.  Hummmmmm......  That was a good question.  My holding them, apparently wasn't a good idea.  So, I used the vice attached to my husbands work bench.



I know the middle one is a little crooked. but, I did it all by myself.  I now belong to the secret society of  power tools -- Ya Ya!!!!!  



This one is my favorite.




This is what I started with.  I wanted something to go with my new white egg wreath and topiary.  Michael's has these in many different shapes and sizes.  I think this size is about .79 cents.



So, I shot it with the same white paint.  Sanded it, stained it, and glued some pretty paper on the front.  For the stick, I used the same dowels that I used for my ribbon projects.  I just cut them down to make different heights.  The hole was pretty snug, so,  I didn't use any glue.  After the holiday, I plan on drilling a straight hole on the other end and filling the crooked hole in with wood putty.



I used these same ovals last year for my Eggs in a Frame.  I have them on my hutch.


For my first drill project, it's not too bad - just a little crooked - ha ha.  (I got the He Has Risen printable last year -- I can't remember where I got it.  If it is yours?  Please let me know so I can link it to you.)

Happy Easter


This is where I hang out and Party - here

  8. Rhonda, I love that they are a bit off centered. Makes them more like easter eggs rather than ovals on a stick. Good for you you've commenced to use power tools. Empowering!!!
