Fabric Easter Eggs

I originally did this post last year, but I'm re-posting it just because it's such a fun idea
and Easter is right around the corner!! Enjoy!

I found the cutest idea the other day and just fell in love with it! Fabric covered Easter eggs!! If you're like me, you've got those plastic Easter eggs taking over your house~they seem to multiply in the attic:) So when I saw this idea, I knew I had plenty of eggs to cover.

First of all, The Princess and I went to (where else?) Hobby Lobby and picked out some spring-y fabrics. Aren't they pretty?

And we grabbed our Mod Podge while we were there, too.

After gathering our eggs...we started cutting our fabric: it should be large enough to go around your egg at the widest part and just cover it from the top to bottom (approx. 6" x 4 1/2"). Then cut strips into the top and bottom of the fabric. (See a picture here, because I forgot to take one...oops).

When your fabric is ready break out the Mod Podge and get messy!! The Princess didn't like this part--haha! I ended up doing most of them myself, but I had so much fun.

After your egg is all slimed up wrap the fabric around it tightly.

Don't worry if you have to use A LOT of Mod Podge and if it gets all over the fabric~it dries great!! Then start overlapping the strips over the ends until the egg is completely covered. More pictures here. Then simply let the eggs dry totally and they're ready to go! So cute!!

The Princess and I took our baskets outside for a photo shoot this afternoon.

I still have tons of eggs left and lots of fabric, so I'll probably do some more soon. Don't worry if the first one is a little tricky, after that one you get into the groove and they just start adding up! And don't worry about getting messy with the Mod Podge~it's practically like Elmer's and washes off easily.

So go grab those eggs and have fun!!

I was just stopping by to see what you were up to. For some silly reason my hand, which was so much better, is really hurting today so I am not up to typing. So I made this little message to let you know I still came by...and I loved your post because I always do!
