{Quick & Easy Fun Project}

Yesterday I decided to do something that I haven't done for a long time.  I was surfing the internet {no not that and I spend waaaaay tooo much time doing that} and came across something I used to LOVE to do when I was a kid.  I thought you might enjoy this fun quick little project and you can get the kiddos involved too!! 


Paper Mache eggs.


This is one of those projects that you probably have everything you need already. 


Take one of those plastic Easter eggs {ya know the ones that you find everywhere around the house after Easter} some Modge Podge and an old pattern cut into strips and you too can have one of these …

……a basket of cute little eggs just like this.  I just love the one that says McCall's.  I'm thinking about putting some gold speckles on them………what do you think?



  1. Hello Robin, I am newer to your blog and just enjoy coming here. The eggs are adorable, gonna have to go up to the attic and get those old plastic eggs down. I have been making pillows too and had downloaded the mannequin image from the Graphic's Fairy. I hope you don't mind, but I was inspired by your idea of adding a little skirt. I will be posting some pictures soon on my blog. Kim

  2. When I used some old pattern to decoupage eggs two weeks ago, I thougt that I had genious idea. Well, it looks like I'm not the only genious around, lol. Your eggs look beautiful!

  3. The eggs are amazing but OMG I love love love that container! Amazing!
