Eggcelent Spring Craft

EGGCELENT SPRING CRAFT

Hey Friends, Spring is on it's way! We've been getting lots of rain here in South Texas and the trees are already blooming. I don't know about you but I'm ready to see some green. To help you along while we wait for Springs arrival, I've got a really fun easy craft for you. This craft will be great to do with kids, friends or just by yourself on a rainy day.

A bunch of my crafting buds and I got together for our monthly craft night, where we created these fun decorative eggs.

You're now done. Place the eggs on a separate plate to air dry.  Once they dry you can then decorate with them.

 After the ladies left with their eggs, they went home and shared how they decorated with them.

 One friend tried to do a egg garland but realized it wouldn't work out. So instead she chose to turn it into a bouquet using skewers.

I placed some of my eggs here on my counter in my egg basket and spoon holder. The flower eggs were made with napkins. My take away on using napkins vs tissue paper is that the napkins wanted to tear and stick more from my fingers. Which made it more difficult to apply and smooth. The texture was nice but I  just found the tissue paper to be easier overall.
