For example: try to find a paper mache egg to craft with. Go ahead. Try. I finally found one bag of six small ones at Michaels. Then, the other day when I stopped in at DrugMart, there was a small pile of larger ones. I grabbed one of those to throw into the mix.
Inspired by THIS, my goal was to use my old hymnal pages to decoupage an egg or two. I'm not gonna lie: this was a cinch, but it was also more time consuming that I thought it would be. I couldn't accomplish much in one sitting simply because there was not much dry space on the egg where I could easily hold it. I ended up using strips from my hymnal pages to complete the large, and one small egg. I did two more small eggs with tissue paper.
Here's what I have so far. Isn't it nice of this bunny to be my spring-time model? The poor guy hops all over this house trying to help me out.
I do like the look of the eggs. The larger one has a flat bottom on which to stand, but is also weighted with a little loose sand, so that it doesn't roll if you want to place it on it's side.
And... the yellow one has a sweet little surprise on one side!
Now, if I had only shopped early enough to find a NEST for them. Maybe next year?
