I know I just showed you guys my own steampunk Easter eggs, but now I get to show you what John made!
Pretty sweet, right?
He made the stand by coiling thick copper wire and then threading it through the egg. The wire sticks out the top, and supports that paper bunny silhouette - which John also made by piecing together some clipart.
The stripes are copper foil tape, and it's finished off with a foil gear and a plastic rhinestone.
I like how the egg has a built-in display - and wouldn't it be fun to make a whole bunch in different heights, and with different silhouettes? (Something for next year, maybe?)
Here's the dapper bunny silhouette, in case you'd like to make one of your own:
Happy Easter, everybody. Hope you're having a fabulous, crafty, and/or candy-filled day!
