Pretty-ing Up Plastic...For Easter

Here I am, searching for just the right eggs to decoupage when all along I could
have been slapping paper on the cheesy cheap-o dime-store eggs I already had!
DUH! I had this idea that the paper wouldn't adhere...DUH! Then I saw what
the sisters @ Nice & Easy Antiques did...right in front of my eyes...easy
as pie...1...2...3!




Thx girls!




It's addicting really!




So much scope for the imagination!




And there's still time! Get going! You have baskets to fill! ;}

  13. Your post made me laugh! I am goofy when it comes to crafting so I would've thought the same thing. But your eggs turned out beautifully, I love the one with the little rose on it:)
