So here is what you will need to make your own vintage style easter eggs.
Plastic Eggs (I got mine at the dollar store)
Glue or Epoxy
Paper from an old book, scripture or hymn (I bought a bible at the dollar store and ripped pages out of it. The look of the hymns on the eggs would be what I preferred but I just wasn't about to rip up my hymn book)-Newspaper could work too.
Buttons, ribbon, or whatever other nick-knacks you have around your house (not pictured)
Take your paper and cut it into strips. Place glue or epoxy in a little plastic cup. (Note: if you use glue I added a bit of water to thin it down.) Place your strips of paper in the glue and place them over your plastic egg.
If you noticed, one of the eggs I did in pieces. I didn't do that with most of them since it was extra work but I plan on decorating the half pieces, place some candy in it, and give it out as a gift to the ladies I visit teach. For my house and decoration purposes I just covered the whole egg.
Once all the eggs are covered let dry. Gather together ribbon, lace, buttons, paper or nick-knacks you have lying around and decorate. Place eggs in a basket, glass case, candle sticks or whatever you have. The possibilities are endless.
I removed my candle on my candle stick and placed my egg on it. For added effect I added some of that moss stuff you can buy at the craft store (or steal some from a fake plant you have around the house- they all have it) to create a nest type effect
I had this little glass case so I placed a bunch of the smaller eggs in it.
It isn't much but it was just enough for me to feel like Easter is coming. So for $3.00 (the two sets of eggs-big and small, and the bible I bought so I wouldn't have to rip up mine) I was able to give my house a bit of an Easter touch.
