sombrero hat garland

when i saw these eggs at walmart over easter, 
my heart skipped a beat.
it's all the color as you may have guessed if you've been following me.
aren't they beautiful?

well i had them in a bowl and now that easter is over and cinco de mayo is coming up soon, i used them to make something.

so first i grabbed some cardboard and spray painted it.
and as the cardboard dried,
i snipped my eggs and kept the larger oval shaped top.
the eggs had 2 tiny holes on top.
next i grabbed some twine, taped one of the ends off and threaded it like so:

now that the cardboard has dried, i used the top of a curling ribbon spool as a template and cut out some circles.
then i took some dollar pom pom trim from the target store and hot glued it to the edge of each circle.
can you guess what i did next?
yup i hot glued those eggs to each circle.
and i got a row of hats.
sombrero hats!

all ready for cinco de mayo!
you like amiga?
i made some edible ones too last year that i think will give you a chuckle.

and you wanna know something?
we don't even really celebrate cinco de mayo here but i am all for making crafts on any given holiday.
ay yi yi yi!
