Vintage Easter Eggs


Have I told you all that I have a great boyfriend? One day, over the winter, I came home and he had bought me a new craft magazine! He happened to be at the store, saw it, and thought I'd love it! It's a pretty nifty {and I think new} magazine called stitch, craft, create . The pages are filled with DIY projects and tons of inspiration. Seriously, you should go check stitch, craft, create's website. {I have no affiliation with stitch, craft, create and I'm not getting paid to say this.}

While flipping though it, I stumbled upon inspiration for my Easter craft! They had a picture of beautiful decoupaged eggs and lace eggs. I knew I want to make something like those for a little Easter decor! Here is what I did...



What you need:

  • Plastic Easter eggs
  • Scrape booking paper
  • Lace
  • Hot glue gun
  • Mod Podge
  • Sponge brush
  • White spray paint {optional}


I bought some plastic Easter eggs at the dollar store and hot glued them shut.


Next, I cut my scrap booking paper into strips {probably 1/2 inch or so}, then cut the strips in 3 or 4. So I had lots of little strips of paper.

I then just mod podged the paper, randomly, onto the eggs.



In the magazine they also had lace eggs. My eggs were pastel colors and I figured the color would show through the lace. So first I spray painted my eggs white, then wrapped the eggs with the lace {attaching with hot glue}.



 I like them!



They look so vintage... hence the name : ).


I guess I like making Easter eggs for Easter as I did eggs last year too!

Are you making any crafts for Easter this year?
