I saw the cutest idea over at The Vintage Nest last week and decided to
give these cute eggs a try.
Lynn gives a complete tutorial on her blog, so I won't repeat all the directions
here, but be sure to visit her blog if you decide to make them.
She also tells you how frustrating they are to make and I can vouch
for that fact. I did find that instead of getting up to wash my hands every
few minutes, I kept a wet wash cloth nearby and that saved a lot
of time and frustration.
What I like about this project is that each of my eggs came out different,
and mine look totally different from Lynn's. They each take on
a unique personality depending on the materials you use. Besides
the materials that Lynn advises, I tore up a couple doilies and I
like the feminine touch they added.
I didn't have a beautiful silver piece to put my eggs in, so I
used a vintage muffin tin instead and nestled mine in moss.
I tried not to make my eggs specifically for Easter, but stamped words
on them that would allow them to be used any time of the year.
Lynn was ambitious and made a set of eggs for a giveaway, herself, and a
set for her Etsy shop. I didn't have quite that much patience, so mine are going
to my shop. Maybe next year I'll make myself a set.
This little sweety is my favorite.
