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.
I made these too using music sheet paper! I love the result. But, they are kind of tricky!
Cute idea! I'll have to go check out the "cheap" paper at the craft store! :)
Very cute Judy! Love Mod podge....
So pretty! I made decoupaged eggs this morning too, but with tissue paper. They're still drying. I love the papers you used! So pretty! Thanks for sharing.
very sweet indeed.
stuff and nonsense
Oh Judy, those are so pretty! I love the way you displayed them in the bread basket too.
These are so pretty ... love the texture! And, they look perfect paired with your cute rooster, too! *Becca*
These turned out wonderful! My kids would love making them, thanks for the great idea! Janell
What a wonderful idea with the eggs. They are so pretty!
cute idea - much better than the plastic. I love modgepodge!!
I can't believe I've not seen your blog until now! Such great ideas and inspiration for someone like me who's just starting to decorate. I'm following! Thanks for stopping by to see me :)
Very cute and pretty!
Adorable eggs Judy!
I'll be back for the party. Thank you for hosting each week.
These are really cute..!! And they look awesome in your kitchen..
Time for me to pull out my scraps and mode podge! Thanks for sharing this.
They are so cute! And I love them in the basket. Very fun!
They turned out so pretty and they look perfect in that bowl..
I love those Judy! They look like something you would find in a boutique! :-)
Nice Judy! It's easier if you use thin paper like tissue paper, paper napkin and such! I did one on a real (empty) egg; I might take a picture if you like!...
Judy: I just have some eggs a dn I thought, what am I going to do with these. You did a great job and thanks for becoming a new follower of mine.
Oh I love your eggs. They are all so pretty. Love the colors and the flowers. I did some years ago to look like calico. I forgot how wonderful they are. Beautiful. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
Hi Judy! Oh, your little eggs are adorable! Love your nest basket too and the Rooster is very important - protecting the eggs! :)
