Dictionary Covered Plastic Eggs

Easter is almost here and even though I live in Southern California and it is almost always Spring here, it has been rainy and cold (for our standards) lately.  I love the Spring since I grew up in the Mid West and actually miss the extreme changes that Mother Nature gave us back there.  Things are starting to bloom and blossom and there is a feeling of new life around us.    

I have a couple Easter ideas to post on my blog, and this is my first, very easy, fast, inexpensive project.  I bought plastic eggs - 6 for $1.00 and took my handy dandy dictionary paper, tore it into small pieces and mod podged it on. 



Then after it dried, I took a yellow highlighter, pink ink pad, green marker, walnut ink pad, and colored each egg.  A couple I left the original color of the dictionary paper.  Then I put another coat of mod podge and sprinkled super fine glitter on them.  It's on there, I just have camera issues.



I put them under a cloche (because everything looks better under a cloche), and have them in my downstairs bathroom.  Soooo easy and they look very pretty with the tiny sparkle from the glitter.

Those are eggs are so pretty. I love the sparkle. And you are right, everything looks better under a cloche!! I Just love having something in my bathroom like that, it makes me smile every time I walk into the room. I need to get mine out and get them finished. I used old music pages for my eggs, thanks for the inspiration!!
