If you have children, I'm going to guess that you have a bag of those plastic eggs lurking somewhere in your basement or attic. Every year, my sister and I fill these eggs with miniature toys and candy and then we toss them all around my mom's backyard on Easter. The kids look forward to it all year long, and my sister and I love competing to see who can come up with the "best" hiding spot.
Of course, it's no secret that I like to repurpose everyday items into something crafty. So I started to wonder if I could possibly turn these shiny plastic eggs into something a bit more decorative. I was so pleased with the results that I decided to make some more for my mantle. Let me know what you think!
Place toys or sealed candy in your plastic egg.
Brush your eggs with Mod Podge(R). Allow to dry for a few minutes until it feels tacky. Sprinkle with salt.
Paint with acrylic paint. Sprinkle with salt. Let dry. Repeat 2-3 times until fully covered.
With a small paint brush and brown paint press spots onto the eggs. Let dry.
With a dry paintbrush dab speckles onto the eggs. Let dry.
