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.
I am a mom to two great kids and wife to a very tolerant husband. When I am not at my job as a research biologist (which I LOVE) or running the kids around to their numerous activities, I can be found immersed in some type of crafty endeavor.
