It was so worth it.
As I put Nola (now 7) to bed the other night, she started crying. Nola was sad that her pretty Easter egg collection had diminished over the years as other kids have joined us in our hunt and have taken the decoupaged eggs home.
“Please Mummy, please make me more pretty eggs.”
This crafty Mumma’s heart melted.
It is worth it to fill my girls’ lives with beauty and handmade loveliness. It really is.
Pretty fabric – cut into strips (or tissue paper)
To decoupage Easter eggs…
1. Fill the plastic eggs with a little bell or dried rice.
2. Close the egg and use the Mod Podge to cover the eggs in fabric.
3. Let dry
4. Use a glue pen to put a dab of glue on the fabric. Sprinkle a little glitter over the glue, wait for the glue to dry, and tap excess glitter off.
Hide in the garden for a beautiful Easter egg hunt, or include in an Easter basket with real grass.
