Egg-straordinary Placeholders

Passing Notes Today:  Mrs. Kelly

Hey girls, 

I was roaming around TJMaxx last week and saw this package of paper mache eggs.  I thought it might be a fun snowy day project (because I live in Rochester and, yes, it's still snowing).

So, I stopped by the Dollar Store and picked up a sleeve of large plastic eggs and then Blondie (my daughter) and I got our craft on. 

This is super easy.  First, start with these:

plastic eggs, strips of newspaper, mod podge (brush optional)

We just dipped strips of newspaper in mod podge and wrapped them around the plastic eggs.  Then we let them dry overnight.  When they were done, we tied twine around them like this:


And then I used a brown paper bag to make tags.  Very simple (those are the only kinds of crafts I do).


A different spin on the colorful variety but egg-sactly what I was going for.

This craft is no yoke! And you don't have to shell out big bucks to make it.  I will stop now.

Happy Easter!

Note from Mrs. Gosling:  I love these!  They are so cute, vintage, rustic, kid friendly .... what a great addition to your Easter table.  PS - saw these at TJ's too and yours are WAY BETTER!!!!

Note from Mrs. Kelly:  I don't know about "way better" but they were definitely cheaper and kept us busy for an that worked, right?  :)
