DECOUPAGE EGGS IN A DOLLAR STORE DISH

Happy Monday! Refurbish it Friday will return this week - I hope- just too much going on around here!
In the mean time, I have a tutorial on how to make some decoupage eggs over at THE HYBRID CHICK BLOG. They are so easy to do and make a pretty addition to your holiday decorations.
I picked the  paper for the eggs first and when I was done, I realized I didn't have anything to put them in.  Off I went to the dollar store to see what I could find.  I got a wire candle holder thingy (not sure what it is actually), a glass dish and some moss.
This is what it looked like originally.
I removed the cup on the bottom by twisting it back and forth till it came off.  I sanded it a bit to remove the rough edges.
I gave it a couple coats of primer and then a couple coats of this robins egg blue color.

I placed the glass dish on top and added some ribbon and prima roses (that I found on clearance at Michaels) to the bottom. I have a pretty little holder for less than three dollars, can't beat that!
I gathered up some organza, tucked it into the dish, and placed some moss and the eggs on top.  Love the shabby look of this.
