So last year I purchased a ton of plastic Easter eggs from the dollar store. I was “that mom” who put her baby in a basket and placed all the plastic eggs around her to get a cute shot. Surprisingly it was a success and now I have a ton of plastic eggs leftover. There is no point in throwing them away since they will come in handy for upcoming easter egg hunts. I saw a fellow blogger post how to “revamp” these plastic eggs and thought it was a really cute idea. Then I searched pinterest and found that this looks to be a trending craft, so of course I had to try it. I had all the materials for this project at hand, so there was no excuses!
- Plastic eggs (any size- I used the larger eggs since I will be making them part of my holiday home decor)
- Some type of Embellishment (whether its a bead or a button)
- Hot glue gun
- Thermal finger thimbles
Oh Jute, how I love thee, there are so many possibilities waiting to happen with you!
First I started at the top of the egg and then just glued a thin layer of glue about a finger tip length (at a time.) Then I started wrapping the jute as close to together as possible around the egg.
My grandmother gave me a lot of her sewing products. I found this lace that she gave me and I thought how perfect it would be.
