Using half an egg to make the bugs 3D is genius. Plain. and. Simple.

I bet she loves them.

Hi,  I wanted to tell you that your kids rooms are inspiring.  I am doing my daughters in flowers and butterflies.  I think that I could add a  bee here and there using your egg technique.  How did you adhere them to the wall?  Any ideas for found objects to make flowers?

beautiful rooms gardenhoe!!!!  I am in the midst of doing my son's and will post when it is done:)

To the pp....I think she may have been talking about the wooden "half eggs" from craft stores?  I have seen them at michaels and jo annes. 

Fabric flowers are always a pretty touch if you want something 3d.  Try rolling fabric scraps into roses, or searching for more complex ones.

i absolutely love the 3d egg effect! How fab!!

Jess, there are a ton of things I can think of to use for making flowers on the wall. As gardenhoe said, fabric works. You could also use craft foam, various beads or jewlery for the middle, even feathers!

Thanks for all the compliments Smiley I actually just used plain old white glue to attach the egg to the wall, which may or may not have been a mistake since we rent here, so I may have to do some repair job before we leave. I was thinking that I might eventually add some flowers, either with paint, or some fake flowers you can get at the dollar store. But as of right now she's only two and still puts everything in her mouth, so will have to wait on that. I am leaning more toward a strawberry theme, painting some strawberry plants along the bottom, and making some strawberry cushions for the floor to sit on.
