|the finished eggs, they are still a bit wet in this picture but i was getting impatient for sleep, sorry :$|
they actually look really cool they are all dry now, i will show you an update photo when i put then in a vase :)
day 285 and it's a pretty quick creation today. as easter gets closer each day, i get more disappointed i haven't been able to decorate for this season. i decided to find an easter craft that i could do from bed today, so when i can move i will at least have some things on hand to decorate with :)
these book covered easter eggs from lemon tree creations looked perfect. they are pinned to my easter in autumn board on pinterest. i had some papermache craft eggs that needed perking up and a vintage book that was already in pieces thanks to some flowers i made last year.
i went with a papermache application of the book pages onto the eggs rather than doing the model cutting tutorial found on lemon tree creations. i decided i wasn't up for well made, more thrown together was what i was thinking for today's creation ... there will be time for well made later this month and the next! to adhere the pages to the eggs i used mod podge in matte and applied it with a foam brush.
|the bits and bobs for today's creating|
|the creating: rip, dab, dab some more :)|
outcome: really cute craft. i actually left some of the eggs for the peeps to do because i figured they would enjoy doing this as well ... that and the fact i was exhausted after half an hour of creating~! i plan to put them all in a glass vase on the table as the start of dressing the dining room for easter, but that will be for another day :)
thanks goes to the lemon tree creations for this great easter craft. regardless of which months you celebrate easter this is a craft that will work well for easter.
