Decorated Easter Eggs

Here's a quick, but I admit a little .....Well, kitschy Easter craft

I used Bright colored plastic Easter eggs


Then I removed the lining from the napkin, cut the napkin in strips, and Mod Podged it on the plastic egg



I liked that you could still see the color of the plastic eggs through the napkin


I decorated each egg with coordinating ribbons, flowers, and jewelry and put them all in my plaster bunny


Move Martin!!


I better HOP along, I have some bigger projects to do!

Happy Creating!
Carol

Hi Carol-

Your Easter eggs are so pretty. I love the shabby chic look of your eggs. The addition of the shredded music sheets added extra interest. Check out the Bowdabra blog. My friend Sarah has some similar eggs, so you might get some more decorating ideas from her! Creative minds thing alike sometimes. Have a great week!

Love the eggs. I've done something similar on 4x4 tiles and liked them too : )

The Tablescaper said...

So cute. I've done modge podge on blown eggs, but never plastic. It's neat how the napkin mellows the color of the plastic egg.

I'd love to have you join me this Sunday at Seasonal Sundays.

Those are works of art, I'd want to leave them out all year. Memorial Day eggs, 4th of July eggs, back to school eggs, Thanksgiving eggs, you get the idea.

I'll never think of plastic eggs the same way again. I love the pretty paper you've added and all the trimmings. Such pretty colors.

I just knew I should pick up a bag of those plastic eggs. You've done a great job of making them look vintage! ~ Maureen

Debbie said...

I'm in the middle of an egg-cellent adventure myself, but mine aren't nearly as lovely as yours. You always take stuff to such a wonderful level.

A Southern Rose said...

They are beautiful! You have inspired me today. Heading out the door for supplies. If mine turn out pretty...lol....I'll put them on my blog and tell them who gave me the idea. Thanks.

I love your blog. I don't see a follower gadget though.

Hugs,
Lee Laurie

P.S. Come visit sometimes. :)

These are so sweet!Years ago my late aunt crocheted Easter eggs for me with plastic eggs! Her hands were getting so arthritic and yet she created those beautiful eggs plus crocheted over a litle plastic Easter basket. I cherish them. I really love these eggs. You made hem so pretty!
