So with my last post of all the fun Easter craft ideas, I decided, "okay, lets make one". So I had been to the thrift store and purchased these fun things.
I am waiting to find a good silver cleaner to clean up this lovely brush set, and I have a spring idea for the glass vase (if that's what you would call it), but this Easter basket was a ready to use purchase. Even better!
The best part is it was only $3.49.
So I pulled out my box of Easter/St. Patrick's Day/Halloween box, and with so many labels on the box, why was I so suprised to find only a few Easter items in it. Mainly some plastic kids eggs and a egg wreath. So I wanted to make a cheap project because in just over a week it will all be back in the Easter box for next year.
Here is what I gathered up for my supplies: plastic eggs, mod podge, foam brush and scrapbook paper scraps. A good way to use up some of the many scraps I have.
I used less than 3 sheets 12x12 scrapbook paper and covered 10 eggs. My girls even helped out, by cutting the scrapbook paper into small strips, and then into squares. I figured squares would be better than strips because they would bubble less.
I then mod podged all the squares onto my eggs. Here's a hint: I modged the outside of the egg first; one square at a time, and rubbed it with my fingers to stay flat. Then I let that dry a little and did the other eggs in the meantime, then I went back and did the top and bottom of all the eggs.
I had some yarn leftover that I had bought from the dollarama. It's pretty and fluffy and will make a good filler for the bottom of my basket.
So here are my eggs, basket and yarn. All I have to do now is put them together.
I am happy with the way they look. Kind of shabby chic. Here is the end result:
Yay, so cute!
