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!!

Hi:
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!

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
