Easter Idea From Last Year


It's about that time to start thinking about some Easter decorating! I thought I'd show you a project that I did last year. It's really easy!


All you do is take a paper mache egg that you can find at any craft store, some white glue or decopauge glue and some glitter. Glue whatever tissue paper, scrapbook paper, wrapping paper or even some cute Easter paper napkins etc onto the egg, sprinkle or roll it in some glitter. Walla, glittered decorated Easter egg. Use whatever paper works for your decor - you know me - I used some toile tissue! Then set them on some thrift store candlesticks or...



place in a nest!





They couldn't be easier to make and it's a fun project that kids will enjoy doing!

I love this! I just went to the city, I have on a fur blue jean jacket and blue jeans! Yes, first time since 2005. They are a size 8 and too baggy. My daughter said to take them off. I feel like a millon buck! I been home an hour and do not want to take my jacket off. I have not worn it since we left work. Hubby laughing. One of my surgery is going to have lypo. nothing is going to fit. Lypo. horrible, I would never ever do it, just to look good. But I had it once and have to again. he need my skin, so he will not have to skin graft. The pain is just terrible. OK I love the eggs. I bought a glue for glass, and it does plastic. I thinking maybe the plastic eggs might work! I want some toile ones. lol Who has toile tissue? You know I never get out. I just love them. Maybe for the tea party or easter. I going for it, Blue toile going on my bench, a table cloth, curtians, in dining room, I have been fighting to keep a lot of blue out of there. But it keeps calling me. lol Not sure all will get made by the 5th. My house is a wreck from the sheet rocking.Blue toile eggs, fabric? Think it would do? I going to try and do this! Thanks for the great idea, as usual.
