Shabby Chic Easter Eggs

Happy Thursday!  What would Thursday be without a little frugal craft reveal :)  This week I found myself at the Dollar Store *gasp* and walked away with a package of plastic Easter eggs.  What oh what to do with them?  I could faux-sugar them...or paint them...or wrap them with twine...oh the possibilities!  So what did I do?  I decoupaged them with the Sunday paper!  I tore a few pages into little bits and modge podged my way to happy little eggs (overlapping my pieces in all directions).  I really like the way they looked with just newspaper on them, but I'm a sucker for a sweet detail so I also added a little ribbon and flower.  Hello my pretty...


Talk about cheap *ahem* frugal!  I spent $1 for 18 plastic eggs and everything else was on hand.  I only used a third of the eggs for this project so I still have lots of eggy crafting in my future :)

OK its after midnight and they are finally showing. I do not know why Google attacks some blogs and leaves others alone. They would do some MAJOR attack on my blog every 2-6 weeks and that is why I left. They drove me insane.
