I've been seeing so many cute ideas with eggs on blogland. Here is my version to add to my Spring decorating.
I started with some plastic eggs I had in the closet from last Easter.
Using Mod Podge I glued the egg together.
I cut strips of scrapbook paper and used mod podge to glue it onto the egg.
I made several using all different patterns of scrapbook paper. I will say that one paper I used was more like card stock and was much more difficult to work with. My "cheaper" scrapbook paper worked very well.
Using a bread basket I have from Williams Somona, I filled it with shredded paper from a gift I received and filled it with my decoupaged eggs. The basket reminded me of a bird's nest. Perfect for my eggs.
I also swapped out my bowl of fruit for my rooster (yes, I'm aware roosters can't lay eggs).
I love my new eggs. Here's a tip - if you decide to try this, my best results happened when I used my entire hand to squeeze the paper onto the egg to eliminate as many creases as possible.
I just love the vintage look of these.
Don't forget my Swing into Spring party opens tonight at 8pm EST. Hope you stop back to show me what you have been up to. Until then, I can't wait to hear what you think of my vintage looking, decoupaged eggs. I always love and appreciate your comments.
