Wow! Only 3 more days until Easter. I never thought it would come and now here it is! I have 1 more Easter craft for you. I was looking at some of my past Easter decorations and came across these:
I probably painted these about 15 years ago. They had cute little canvas ears. Well, I got tired of them and ripped off the canvas ears, because I knew I could do something with them!
How about some paper covered eggs?? So easy and very inexpensive! You could even do this to plastic eggs.
Here is what you need:
-A few pieces of coordinating scrapbook paper.
-ric rack (I used yellow, green and white to go with the paper I was using)
-Wood or plastic eggs
First I sanded the eggs a little to get some of the paint off. I didn't really need too though. The paper is just going to cover them anyway!
I let the eggs dry for about 1 hour. I just set them on some wax paper to dry.
Here is where I put the ric rack on. I just glued the ric rack on in random places, winding it around the egg.
I forgot to take pictures of the 3rd egg....Sorry:) I think I like the 3rd one the best. I too the mini white ric rack and rolled it into a flower, then glued them to the egg in random places. Super cute!!
Here they are all done! Don't you love the one with the little white flowers?? The egg holder thingy I have also had for years. It was a mauve color with dark green leaves. I had to spray it! I like it much better now....it's amazing what little spray paint can do!
I love re-purposing things! So much fun:)
I will be away for a few days. I am going on a little getaway with the hubs! Can't wait for long walks on the beach and a wonderful breakfast:)
