So far I have not made any Easter decorations and Easter is only 3 days away. Ahhhh! That's okay.. I have been working on some really cute book page paper mache Easter eggs that have been part of my stashbusting!
The only problem is that they take a loooong time to make each individual egg. That being said.. I have only made 6. So I had to find a creative way to package them into a decoration.. and then ding ding ding! I had it a winner of an idea. How about an Easter Egg Bird Nest!
So now here is how I made it!
Paper Mache Eggs
Paper Easter Images
For the Nest
Dollar store wreath
Burlap or other fabric
You can start by making either one. I started with the eggs.
First print your Easter images. I can't remeber where mine came from.. I just googled Vintage Easter images and printed what I liked. Next cut your book pages into little squares.
Then ModPodge the pages onto the egg.
Once the eggs are done add your image. Usually I am a little OCD about the bubbles and ripples in my Mod Podge but in this case I thought that the bubbles and ripples added character and a vintage-y effect.
After making the eggs.. I thought that they needed a home so I went through my stash and found an old wreath from the dollar store and some spanish moss.
I wrapped the wreath in the spanish moss.
Then I cut a piece of burlap a little larger than the wreath hole and hot glued it to the back.
It looked like this.
Then I added some Spanish moss to the middle of the wreath and hot glued it onto the burlap.
Last I glued the eggs into the nest and added a little yellow bow to dress it up a bit!
Hopefully I will get a few more eggs done and made into another project.. if not Happy Easter!~
