With the emergence of Spring comes the joy of making Easter Goodies! This weekend I thought it would be fun to decorate some paper mache eggs I found at Michaels. I thought it would be fun to decoupage some vintage hymnal papers onto them and it was a relatively easy process.
Here's the finished project! Don't these sweet little egges decorate my basket perfectly?
I started with some paper mache eggs, modge podge, and torn squares of paper.
I coated the eggs with modge podge. (You may want to use gloves for this process...it's pretty sticky business, lol!) I adhered the paper squares with the modge podge and it works well to coat the paper with modge podge as you go. The hymnal paper was nice and thin and molded to the egg quite nicely.
As you cover the egg with the paper, saturate the paper with modge podge and use your fingers to smooth the paper onto the egg.
Decorate your finished eggs as desired.
I used some Prima and Recollections roses and some Papertrey Twill Ribbon.
Such a fun and easy little project with fantastic results!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Remember that You are Special and I appreciate you!!
