Damask Mod Podge Easter Eggs

My quest to bring Spring to the freakishly red upstairs continues.

Today’s attempt:  Make An Easter Tree

egg.1

Or as I like to call it, “One last holiday display from my ready-to-retired stick tree that keeps hanging around.” (See it for other holidays here and here).

But as soon as I drug out those bright plastic eggs and saw just how violently they clashed with the walls, I immediately switched tactics:

Plan B: I’ll just paint them.

Except as it turns out, I didn’t have spray paint in the colors I wanted … and craft paint isn’t on speaking terms with plastic …

so I dug through the left-over birthday stuff and improvised.

Paint + Podge + left over gift bag tissue =

Easter eggs that play nice with red

And these were so easy to make:

Glue eggs together … paint a base coat to match tissue paper …

… mog podge tissue paper to eggs … let dry and swoon.

A small loop of clear thread hot glued to the top finishes these little babies off.

Of course then you could skip the loops altogether for display on a bookcase or coffee table.

Other than wanting a few more eggs to fill in the bare spots on my Easter tree …

… I’m loving my red-friendly Easter tree with the beautiful damask print and bright teal pop.

  1. Great idea! My mind is spinning with all the tissue paper possibilities in my wrapping paper stash. And how liberating to make easter suit your decor rather than the other way 'round. It looks good against all the freakish redness :).

  2. These turned out very pretty – – and a great fit with your red wall. I'm thinking I should check the tissue paper stash over here – – would love to fill a little hurricane with them.

    Thanks for sharing! I'm visiting from CSI.
