Marvelous Mess and Happy Easter!

Welcome to my Marvelous Mess!
Stopped by a barn a few days ago where there was a bevy of beautiful baby lambs....

So cute! 
They were so rambunctious. 
They were brave with their moms around...

It was adorable to see them frolicking around the field.

Happy Easter and Happy Spring!

My fave from last week:

Wet Felted Easter Egg Tutorial

Here is a really simple Easter Egg craft for you OR your children! These eggs look fantastic and are a fun take on the traditionally smooth and shiny Easter Egg.

Here is what you need:
Stryofoam Eggs
Wool Roving (many colors)
Hot Soapy Water
Cold Water
Needle Felting Supplies (optional)

~Take your egg and wrap a long piece of roving around it, try to cover it from different directions. You can add multiple pieces of roving if you'd like at this point. I used some needle felting to tack them into place to make the wet work easier, but you don't have to do that if you don't want to.
~Place the roving covered egg in the hot soapy water and roll it around in your hands, making sure you get a lot of soap and water on it every now and then. The wool fibers will slowly begin to shrink around the egg. Once the roving is feeling a little more firmly in place, you can be more wild with the agitation of the wool... in the beginning you'll have to go pretty easy.
