Crafty Things: Decorated Eggs (for Easter!)

Wait a minute, did she say Easter???

Yes, actually, I did!
I recently did a little project that I meant to do before Easter, and then promptly forgot about it until last week!

This project was very simple (even if it was a little messy). It involved some styrofoam eggs, plain white tissue paper, one of my background stamps, ribbon and Modge Podge.

A few years ago at Stamp Club, we used some colored tissue paper and glued it on foam eggs with glue and then decorated the eggs with ribbon and little flowers from a punch. (see photo below)

                                         Some glitter glue provided a little sparkle as well.
 I tried a similar thing this time, but used Modge Podge and instead of colored tissue paper, I used plain white and stamped on it with a large background stamp that I had that is called 'Bella Toile'. 
The ink color I actually used was black, but the glue made it turn sort of purple. It was a little tricky and a little messy, but it actually turned out pretty cute. After the glue was dry, I tied a ribbon around the eggs and hot glued a little sparkly doodad on them for some 'bling'.

For the photos, I piled them in my milk glass nesting hen dish. Next year I'm going to try and find a cute little bowl or a basket to display them in for Easter.

Now I'm all set for next Easter!

Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be joining these parties:
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Home Sweet Home at The Charm of Home
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage

Beautiful!!!Now did you stamp the tissue before or after you glued it to the egg? And if you did it after, did you let the mod podge dry before stamping? I am on our hospital auxillary and we try to put a little happy on the patients trays on holidays-these would be perfect for Easter. I love your blog!

Your eggs are beautiful and romantic! I love the toile pattern on them. That is a great idea for an egg. Very nice job!
