Spring Fling Craft: Easter Eggs

It’s official! It’s been Spring for 3 whole days and what could make Spring even better than a craft? Maybe a Cadbury Egg or ten but I’m pretty happy with a craft for today so I’m linking up with Kate from Centsational Girl to do just that.

I love to decorate for Easter. Love, love LOVE it. And this year I bought some plain white eggs for cheap at Hobby Lobby thinking they would be simplistic and classy. Wrong! They looked more like golf balls sitting on the table so they needed a makeover, stat.

You may have guessed that I just mod-podged them with some pretty paper, but here’s exactly what I used…

The paper is gift wrap I picked up on my last trip to the Container Store that I just cut in to little strips.

I applied some mod-podge with a foam brush to the strips and then layered and layered until it was covered. The next part was so messy that you don’t get a picture. It was kind of hard to hold the camera as I rubbed it all in with my hands until it was smoothed out. And then I had to peel the layers off my hands. Maybe I should have found a neater way to do that but that’s not really how I do things. Maybe next timeThen I just let them dry. They’re not perfect, so if you’re into that kind of thing this may not be the project for you. But if you like the texturey character these have and don’t mind literally getting your hands dirty then this project is a good match for you, and me. Perfection is over-rated.  Now we’re ready to decorate. Here’s what I did…

I layered my new pretty eggs, the leftover white ones (that are now quite pretty with their colorful friends), some wheat grass that I grew just for the occasion and don’t forget the bunnies! I think I’m almost ready for Easter dinner, almost.

  1. Great project! I have never seen wrapping paper worthy of decorating eggs at any stores around here :) Your little vignette of spring and Easter things looks lovely.

    I’m linked up to party, too and would love for you to check out another easy way to decorate eggs – stone effect spray paint.

    Happy Spring!

    • Thank you so much, Claire!
      I’m headed over to see your project as well. You can never have too much “egg-spiration” right? ;)
      Thanks again for your kind words and stopping by!
