Eggs, eggs and more eggs!

Yep, Spring fever has hit my home! I purchased unfinished wood eggs in two sizes and decoupaged old sheet music on them. Then I embellished each one differently. What a fun day that was!
Original wood eggs

After covering them in old sheet music





This egg was a large egg I had painted with roses. I re-purposed it by making a zipper rose, using a tatted heart, some scrap-booking letters and a cute paper butterfly.

Vintage Haeger Pottery found at a junk store for $1 in perfect condition. Old wire egg separator turned flower art, $2. Large egg stands up by hot gluing a large button on the bottom. Large nest FREE, the junk store guy was throwing it away as I walked in! Must have been meant to be!

  1. That is way to cute. I have seen them wrapped, but the extra step of embellishing sure made all of the difference. It looks like it was a fun project!

  17. What precious lil eggs you've created! Love the way you displayed them, too. The "zippered" rose egg and the "seperator" egg are my favs! And thanks so much for the button on the bottom tip to help an egg stand upright!
