We've been going a little egg crazy around here! Crafting, eating, watching...
I first saw these decoupaged eggs on Dawn's 4:53 am blog. All you need are those cheap plastic eggs, paper (we used sheet music and various scrapbook paper), mod podge, glitter and ribbon.
I used white, pink, purple and blue glitter with matching ribbon.
I think I like the white ones the best. Amy from Inspireco has a great tutorial if you would like to make some too.
The girls had a friend over yesterday and ended up making about 20 of them. The glitter was a big hit!
I also made a couple of moss covered eggs that I heard about from Katie at Harrington House.
I just hot glued moss onto a styrofoam eggs and added a bow.
We ate some egg shaped biscuits with our dinner last night.
The leftovers are great for breakfast the next day and I added a few surprise sprinkles for the girls and Benjamin.
We are watching the mama Mourning dove on her nest. They were having trouble building the nest on the top of our electric meter last year, so I attached an empty kleenex box up there, which them seem to like.
And finally, a card making project. These decorated paper eggs are actually little pockets for holding a note card or letter.
The card slips right inside...
And is hidden away. I'm putting one in each of the Easter baskets this year. Scroll down or go HERE for the instructions.
~Happy first day of Spring!~
