Fancy Eggs

While I was on an egg roll (pardon the pun), I thought I'd take some ordinary paper mache eggs and make them fancy. First I gave them a quick coat of paint, then I tore some scrap book paper into pieces and applied it using mod podge. They seemed a bit plain so I applied more mod podge and covered them with sparkling crystal glitter.
The glitter looked so pretty that I covered the remaining eggs using only sparkling silver glitter. Once dry, I placed them into a tarnished silver basket along with the chalkboard eggs.

Who says Easter eggs only look good in pastels?

Those eggs look beautiful. But, I think anything looks better in glitter!!!!

Those are great :-) I wish I had the patience to do projects/crafts like you do! I'm too lazy I guess. You should sell your stuff on etsy.com, I know I would buy a lot from you :-)

The eggs look so dressed up and pretty. I did the same thing lat night in pastel colored scrap paper and wasn't that pleased. I agree they look beautiful. Maybe if I glitter them?? I like the chalkboard eggs also. They really are a nice statement.
